Empow Studios Expands to Newton LocationExpansion Brings Empow Studios to Newton Year-Round
Empow Studios, a provider of technology enrichment programs for school-aged children based in Lexington, MA, 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.
“The Newton-Needham community has always been very interested in our technology programs, and our limited camp weeks at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center were always filled and had waiting lists,” says Empow Founder Leonid Tunik. “It’s time we established a year-round presence in the Newton area, offering a full spectrum of camps, clubs and classes that feature our project-based technology curriculum.”
The new studio will open in April in time for school vacation. The week of April 16-20 features an April vacation Minecraft Camp, which focuses on educational aspects of the game. Beginning the week of April 21, additional programs will start running, including Empow’s popular Weekend Clubs and the STEM After School Club, a fully licensed after-school care program with a technology twist.
To welcome the community, a 35% discount will be added to all programs running during May at the new Newton studio. Empow Studios will also offer an April vacation Tech & Design Camp at its current JCC location.
Empow Studios Newton is also ramping up for a full summer of camps that will expand upon its traditional Tech & Design and Minecraft Camps, to also include a JAVA Coding Camp and the new Girls STEM Camp.
“These days, there are a lot of options available to parents when considering STEM programs,” adds Tunik. “But our unique approach rooted in the principles of playful learning, constructionism, and project-based learning has been embraced by kids and parents. We nurture the love of technology as a creative tool, an experience that will stay with young learners much longer than any specific set of Java or Python techniques.”
