Newton, MA – Empow Studios, a provider of K-12 STEM curriculum and enrichment programs, is thrilled to announce it will be expanding and adding a new, year-round studio space in Newton, MA. The new location, at 180 Needham Street, allows Empow Studios to better serve a community it has come to know well.

Open House – June 23rd 12-2PM
Features robotics, 2D & 3D video game design, animation, Scratch programming, coding, 3D modeling & printing, audio engineering, digital music, and video production. Empow teaches the basics, and campers use their imagination to make their projects come alive. Open to campers entering grades 2 through 8.
Java Coding Camp allows young programmers to take their skills to the next level. Using the Greenfoot environment, campers have a user-friendly tool to start coding in Java to create simple games. The Goal: create custom video games and conquer group-based challenges, all through the power of kids writing code! Open to campers entering grades 4 and up.
Empow focuses on various educational aspects of Minecraft. Campers learn modding, electrical engineering (via redstone circuits), architecture, game design, and world creation. Campers even create very simple computers inside Minecraft. Open to campers entering grades 2 through 8.
Girls have high scores in early science tests. So, why do girls claimed only 19% of all bachelor’s degrees in engineering and 18% in computer science in 2014? The goal of the Girls STEM Camp is to reinforce and expand interest in the sciences by having the girls, led by encouraging teachers, explore art, coding, and engineering through projects in animation, robotics, 3D modeling, fashion, and design. No prior tech experience is required; open to girls entering grades 2 through 8.
