Video Game Design Classes

Does your child love video games? Channel that passion by having them learn to build their own in a video game design class! Together with like-minded video-game enthusiasts, students will build video games step-by-step, experimenting with specific tasks and movements, and sharing gameplay with their peers, all while learning important STEM concepts of design, problem-solving, and trial/error.

When you join our new After School STEM Enrichment Program – BUILD, you’ll have access to dozens of classes, available after school. Monthly membership includes two 1-hour classes each week with options across our five STEM domains – Coding, Robotics, Digital Art & Design, Video Game Design and Minecraft. Learn more about all that BUILD membership includes and schedule your free consultation so we can make sure your child has the best path of classes this year!

All Video Game Design Classes are available in our Lexington and Newton Studios, or Online.

They will learn to use the accessible game design program Flowlab — no coding required — a platform used by many professional game designers to prototype new builds. All games will be stored online, so students can gain access after class ends, and, if their game is approved, upload it to Google Play or the Apple Store!

RAVE REVIEWS FROM PARENTS LIKE YOU …

These virtual classes rock-- we love Empow!

I didn’t think I’d get to see my friends for awhile, but with the online Empow class, it’s like we’re together again!

These classes give me the time to get my own work done while knowing my child is learning valuable skills in a supervised setting. You've done a great job!

The small virtual class size and attentive and knowledgeable teachers make sure that my son is engaged and learning while also having fun!

My two kids attended virtual classes at Empow Studio today with their teachers and classmates, and it was a fantastic experience. Not only did it keep them busy during this challenging time when both my husband and I are trying to work from home, but it also provided them with an enriching academic activity and fulfilling interaction with their teachers and classmates!

Both my husband and I are physicians, and are having to work long hours while our kids are at home with limited supervision. You have thought of everything we are desperately in need of right now. THANK YOU!

THANKS FOR THINKING CREATIVELY TO ASSIST FAMILIES DURING THIS TIME!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for doing this for our children (and for us parents too)!!!!!
