Engineering in Lynchburg

Let Your Child’s Imagination Soar

Race cars and bridges don’t build themselves. They need dreamers. Problem solvers. Tinkers ... In other words, engineers! And that’s why we created Engineering. At Sylvan Learning of Lynchburg, we want to help your child discover the amazing world of engineering.

In Engineering, your child will take on fun, hands-on challenges, such as building simple machines or designing amazing bridges. Every session has a creative theme to inspire the kids as they experiment with important STEM concepts.

Whether you’ve got a future engineer, architect or mechanic in your midst, we offer several engineering programs for elementary and middle school-aged students to get young minds racing!

How engineering classes at Sylvan Learning of Lynchburg work

Every minute is packed with fun!

Your child and a buddy will work on a new project in each class — either building a cool machine with LEGO® bricks or constructing one of the world’s seven bridge types with K’NEX® pieces. Using both their hands and their minds, the kids will investigate important science, engineering and architectural concepts.

Best of all, your child will think like a real engineer: building a machine or structure, testing it, taking it apart, and then redesigning it to come up with a better solution.

The kids get so involved in their projects they don’t even realize they’re learning essential STEM and problem-solving skills.

At the end of each engineering class, your child will complete a wrap-up activity to reinforce the concepts he or she learned. You’re welcome to use it to continue the STEM conversation at home. Don’t be surprised if you hear all about the machines or bridges during the car ride home. These projects are cool!

A few reasons your child (and you!) will love Engineering at Sylvan of Lynchburg

  • Innovative STEM curriculum. Your child will learn STEM vocabulary words and important skills for success — all while having a blast.
  • Creative exercises. In Engineering, your child will solve problems like a real engineer: designing, testing and redesigning. Our projects encourage teamwork, critical thinking skills and an early love for STEM.
  • Fun, hands-on activities. We’ll engage your child’s hands and mind. (We love educational screen time, but these courses are all about unplugging!)
