Why Sylvan for STEM

Find out why Sylvan EDGE is the most popular STEM program in North America!

Share the Best Experiences With Your Child

The earlier you can give your child fun, hands-on experiences with science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the better you can set your child up for success in advanced classes and in fast-growing, high-paying careers.

Sylvan is so proud to be at the heart of this movement. We’re not only the biggest provider of STEM programs in North America, we’re also the best. Here are reasons families love Sylvan EDGE.

Fun, engaging classes

Highly interactive. Highly creative. Highly fun! Our hands-on STEM activities are a blast — from building robots, to designing video games, to competing in exciting challenges. Best of all, the kids don’t even realize they’re learning.

Innovative curriculum

We’ve created our own, proprietary curriculum. In addition to being super fun, it encourages innovation, creativity and critical thinking. Your child will learn the STEM skills and vocabulary words needed to excel in school, careers and life.

Programs that grow with your child

Your child can progress through our STEM programs from grades 1-8. We’ve intentionally focused on these pivotal grade levels to nurture an early love for STEM. And there’s always another cool class to take!

The coolest technology

No one else uses technology in its STEM programs like Sylvan. From our use of netbooks, to award-winning LEGO® Education software, to Tynker™ technology, to K’NEX® pieces, we turn screen time into skill time! 

Reinforcement tools for learning on the go

Learning shouldn’t stop at the end of the class. It should continue far beyond. That’s why we’ve created a variety of tools to help you encourage STEM conversations and learning at home. They’re a great way to get concepts to stick!
