My daughter comes to Empow once a week after school. She loves it so much! There are so many choices of tech things to do. She's had so much fun and the instructors are friendly, knowledgeable and fun. It is always hard to ask her to leave when I pick her up, because she wants to stay to the last minute. I will definitely register her next year.

–Charles in Lexington

My son has been to Empow's Brookline camp both in Feb and April school breaks. Love it. The teachers are very knowledgeable, teach well and very good with kids. We will go back!

–JD in Brookline

We loved Empow! My kids could not get enough! Each morning, they woke up on their own and nagged us to leave earlier! My boys have different interests, and I am really pleased that both were so engaged.

We loved Empow!
–Melissa

Our son's experience was an unparalleled success. The skill and engagement of the instructors was evident in the caliber of work produced by each and every camper. And, the camp's commitment in guiding every child in the pursuit of his or her individual creative path is priceless.

Our son’s experience was an unparalleled success
–Richard in Cambridge

Learning game design and robotics at Empow really encouraged my creativity, and taught me that creativity and science could be done together. It opened up paths and college and my career that I didn't know existed. Thanks!

Learning game design and robotics at Empow really encouraged my creativity
–Camper Alumni

Looking back, Empow was a big part of why I choose to major in engineering.

I was really impressed with the instructors and how they were able to bring out so much from the kids. My son had a wonderful experience and is already asking about participating again next year!

I was really impressed with the instructors
