Hamilton’s Sylvan Learning Center is celebrating the launch of Sylvan EDGE, a series of highly engaging, hands-on classes that empower parents to incorporate STEM into their children’s after-school activities.
On April 25, Sylvan Learning in Hamilton will host a “Find Your Edge” event for local families, scout leaders, coaches and educators to help children find their edge by experiencing Sylvan’s new hands-on robotics and coding activities in a fun and creative atmosphere.
Geared to families with kids in grades one through six, this free community event will provide children with the opportunity to build and animate LEGO® robots, design video games, solve fun math brain boosters and more. With an alarming number of parents reporting that their children lack skills in advanced math (69%) and computer science (coding and programming) (80%), there is a critical need to introduce children to events like this in order to peak their interest in STEM at an early age.
“We pride ourselves on having strong relationships with local educators and a robust presence here in Hamilton and continue to be heavily committed to increasing STEM proficiency among children in our local community,” said Mark Kance. “We want to provide parents with the opportunity to start STEM education at an early age in order to better prepare their children for the future job market.”
Sylvan Learning of Hamilton’s Find Your Edge Event will be on Saturday, April 25 at their 3635 Quakerbridge Road location in Hamilton (directly across from Princeton BMW) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Call 609-588-9037 or email [email protected] to RSVP.
