Robotics for Kids!
The goal of our Sylvan Robotics courses is to bring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts to students at an early age, making learning fun and inspiring interest and excitement about robotics. The program’s content is created specifically for Sylvan using LEGO® Education’s award-winning curriculum as a guide. Students learn how different science and engineering concepts work together when building robots and using basic computer-programming knowledge to animate their robots.
Coding for Kids!
Our new Sylvan Coding courses help teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts to students in a fun, interactive and engaging way. Beyond encouraging an interest in technology, our curriculum fosters innovation, creativity and imagination. Sylvan Coding features the renowned Tynker technology that leverages an easy step-by step introduction to coding and convenient drag-and-drop technology. Students learn computer programming skills through video game design. The courses foster a creative learning environment where students learn how to bring characters and stories to life using basic coding building blocks. Students also learn design conception, pattern recognition, algorithmic thinking, and problem solving skills.
Offered during the summer, math edge is for students in 1st grade through Algebra 2. Students work in small groups to either remediate skill gaps from the previous year, or preview skills for the upcoming one. If you want to make sure your child doesn’t experience summer learning loss, then these are the classes for you!
