BEST ONLINE LEARNING TECH
TalentBox, our online learning platform, has been successfully used to support tens of thousands of happy learning kids in the US and internationally. AND students get free use of Talent Box anytime while registered so they can continue working on projects outside of class time.
STEM OPTIONS FOR EVERY CHILD
Whether your child wants to learn Robotics, Coding, Engineering, Digital Art & Design, Movie Making, Electronics, or Video Game Design, we have the curriculum and expert teachers! New classes and options kick off every week, and all options will be available in April.
Many of us are working parents with young kids. We understand the challenges families face due to school closings, and have designed our wrap-around services to make taking classes with Empow simple and easy.
We provide safe inclusive spaces where kids can feel comfortable, share their ideas, work together, and make new friends.
LIVE-VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS
Our complete curriculum includes subjects organized into five domains – Digital Art & Design, Minecraft, Coding, Robotics, and Video Game Design.
If you would like to plan ahead, here is what you’ll need:
- Computer with microphone, speakers and internet. If you have used your computer for webex, facetime, or used the audio collaboration features in Fortnite or Minecraft you’re probably all set. A more detailed technical spec by class will be provided. Chromebooks and tablets will only work for specific classes.
- Zoom. You can download the free Zoom application here.
- TalentBox. Empow’s online curriculum and learning management system, Talent Box, is accessible and fully functional on any web browser. We will provide a log-in after you enroll.
- Application software. Empow teaches its students to code, create movies, build video games, architect buildings, design in Minecraft and more in industry-standard software. Of the 29 applications we teach, 22 are available for free, 2 additional ones have lengthy free trials, and only five require low-cost purchase. The software we teach is described in each topic description. A complete list is available here.
Robotics kits and other supplies. When you enroll in a particular class, we will clearly identify if additional, course-specific supplies are needed, and provide clear instructions on where and how to purchase them.
After you enroll, we will guide you step-by-step through the process of getting ready for live virtual classes. We provide a range of support options including via webinars, phone, email, chat and even (with parents permission) configuration of your computer remotely by our staff.
