Empow Studios After School Club (ASC) is a unique care and enrichment program that brings together technology, arts, and play. Whether your child is programming their first robot or creating a self-watering garden in Minecraft, we nurture their creative talent, build up their imagination, and spark interests that can open up new possibilities, while accommodating individual differences. ASC is open on early release days for Lexington. Our After School Program is perfect for kids in grades 2 through 8 in Lexington, MA and nearby communities.
The ASC schedule includes physical breaks and snack time. Homework is done and checked daily, with support from our staff. During “Project Time,” kids will continue working on their favorite video games, robots, and Scratch projects, or start a new project within our Tech & Design curriculum. Kids end the day with “Choice Time,” which includes group games, Minecraft, LEGO free-building, and other creative activities.
The week runs Monday through Friday. Families can sign up for the number of days that works best for their schedules.
Thu: 12:00pm-3:00pm & 3:00pm-6:30pm*
*Thursday is a long day due to the Lexington early release schedule. Thursday consists of two blocks. For example, registering for a full week means selecting 6 blocks.
Kids will ask, “Why can’t SCHOOL be like this?”
