Henry Houh has earned four degrees—including a Ph.D.—from MIT, patented seven inventions in the United States and Europe, founded several tech start-ups, and even played on the famous MIT blackjack team portrayed in the film “21”. Instead of spending his afternoons toasting flutes of champagne with other successful entrepreneurs and scientists, Henry works with kids. When he’s not raising his own three tykes, he’s educating other youngsters at local schools, museums, or his own venture, Einstein's Workshop.

Henry and his staff fill the 7,000-square foot Einstein’s Workshop with hands-on activities designed to teach scientific, technological, engineering, and mathematical concepts in a fun, engaging way. Inside the main play space, youngsters can solve stacking puzzles, build elaborate LEGO and K'Nex structures, or assemble electronic devices using Snap Circuits. Classes delve deeper into various scientific subjects, from 2D and 3D computer-aided design workshops to classes where students create robots using LEGO WeDo and Mindstorms kits. Einstein's Workshop even caters some courses to curious adults, such as sessions that explain how to operate a laser cutter or implant a cleanliness microchip into messy roommates.

At Vivo Fencing Club, a trio of decorated Hungarian coaches share their wisdom and expertise with beginner-through-elite-level fencers. Head coach Arpad "Arpi" Horvath has been involved in the sport since 1989, later going on to become a two-time NCAA champion during his time at St. John's University in New York. Today, Arpi and his fellow coaches rely on the Hungarian fencing approach—which focuses on the whole fencer—to teach students of all ages and abilities. They offer classes for students as young as six, allowing youngsters a chance to gain discipline and develop useful skills while their friends are still struggling with the mountains of paperwork that come with running a lemonade stand.

The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

The Range

As an alternative to traditional ranges, Massachusetts Gun Safety relies on a high-definition training simulator similar to the ones used by police. The computerized system presents different targets and scenarios, and users fire laser-based weapons toward a 70-inch screen.

The Rentals

The training simulator uses laser-based firearms, which accurately mimic the look, feel, and recoil of handguns such as a .40-caliber Glock.

At a Glance

Though Massachusetts Gun Safety empowers its students to safely handle and operate firearms, you?ll never hear the sound of live gunfire within its locations in Woburn and Quincy. That?s because all target practice takes place in each of the the school?s virtual simulators, which complement the quizzes and lectures given by instructors. These experts delve into the basics of gun safety and state laws.
