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)!!!!!

HOW WE PACK SO MUCH AWESOME INTO EACH DAY AND WEEK

Getting Ready

In the days before classes begin, you will receive simple-to-follow instructions that will guide you through each step to be ready for class.

For those that need additional help, we are running webinars every Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday at 12pm ET / 9am PT that will answer your questions and guide you through each step. Video, phone, chat, and email-based technical support are additionally available.

In the Classroom

Students meet live with their instructor and classmates. In each 2-hour live class meeting, students will:

  • Gather as a group and, using video and audio on their computers, talk and interact
  • Work independently, and at their own pace, on our learning management system, TalentBox
  • Tackle projects such as coding a video game or engineering a 3D digital bridge
  • Get one-on-one video-enabled help from their instructor to help them complete their project
  • Submit their projects to the instructor who will offer feedback and areas for improvement
  • Earn badges as they progress through increasingly challenging projects
  • Collaborate with other students, review each other’s projects and offer encouragement and help
  • Take breaks as a group for stretching and physical activities

Acclimating Students to the Online Learning Environment

In school, students need to learn the rules of their classroom — such as whether or not to raise their hands before they ask a question — and learn where books, resources and supplies are located. It’s the same in a virtual classroom. Students need to learn how to navigate around, ask questions, share their work with each other and the instructor and more. We’re holding webinars every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday at 2pm ET / 11am PT. Students can attend any of these webinar sessions so they feel comfortable when class is ready to start!

Outside of Class Time

Students have ongoing access to TalentBox, their online files, and all of the software they use during class. So whenever they want, your children can continue to work on the projects they started during class.

Focusing on virtual learning and fun!

EXPLORE 

This program is ideal for working parents that need to have two or four hours per day of reliably uninterrupted time, and for children who would like to explore a wide range of learning topics and find what most ignites their passion.

Students join us five days a week, Monday through Friday, with each class meeting for two hours each day. We offer six different times each day 9am-9pm ET / 6am-6pm PT, so you can choose a time that works best for you and your child.

Once your child is assigned to class, he or she will meet at that same time each day, with the same group of students and the same instructors. Each week, the class will focus on one of our topics, with the initial options including Digital Arts — Animation, Digital Arts — 3D Sculpting, Computer Aided Design — TinkerCad, Coding – Scratch and Coding – Python. In this way, students are exposed to four different topics during the session.

Outside of class time, students have unlimited access to our online learning platform, TalentBox, so they can continue learning and working on their digital movie, code or others projects while enrolled.

This program option includes phone, email, chat and webinar-based technical support so we can get your child up and learning smoothly.

You and your child will have a dedicated counselor who will:

  • Guide your child one-on-one though the process of getting their computer ready for classes with all the necessary software and hardware.

Next sessions kicking off:
