Sylvan Robotics with Legos classes are designed for kids in second through sixth grade. This new educational program helps students gain a love of science and technology at a young age with interactive, fun, and hands-on activities. During this 6 hour workshop, kids build robots out of Legos and bring them to life with computer programming.
Robotics classes expose students to different technology and engineering concepts in an unconventional and fun way in order to help them develop a life-long interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects. The hands-on learning experience encourages collaboration among the students, helping them build important critical thinking skills and demonstrating how seemingly abstract concepts can work together to create a tangible object—a programmable robot.
Coding camps familiarize students with programming by designing and building 2D video games from start to finish. Kids learn how to create characters, animations, sounds and special effects to design a final video game that he or she can play with friends. Additional skills include basic coding, problem solving, logic, and physics.

About Sylvan Learning
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
