Newton Studio location details

Our NEW Studio in Newton is opening in late Spring 2018!

The Newton STEM Enrichment Center is equipped with all of the latest tech gadgets to keep kids continuously thinking about what they can create next. 1-to-1 laptops for every child, a studio 3D printer, LEGO EV3 Robotics, animation & movie-making setups, and premium software for all of the subjects we teach. Plus, for every project a child creates in our studio, they have something to take home and share with family & friends.

We are located right across from the new Newton Nexus Mall, and have a large parking lot for easy pick up and drop off.

We loved the Empow experience. My kids could not get enough of it – they nagged us every morning to leave earlier (which has never happened before). I am really pleased that both boys, who have very different interests, were so engaged.

Melissa, a Lexington Empow Camp mother

“It’s a unique camp… where you can learn new technologies, which is something you can’t really do at home.”

“I keep coming back here because it’s a place where I can be myself.”
“If I could come here all the time, I definitely would want to.”
