VIENNA, Va., Sept. 8, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Stemtree Education Center will celebrate its official grand opening on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 220 Maple Ave West, beginning at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. Stemtree takes a unique approach to providing students in grades K-12 with one-on-one instruction in science, technology, and engineering. The community is invited to see our facility first-hand and to learn how Stemtree differs from traditional STEM centers.

Stemtree is the first after-school center in the area to offer STEM-focused enrichment through hands-on projects and experiments which we have aptly named "workouts." Students enjoy learning outside of a traditional classroom setting through a highly structured, yet highly customizable curriculum. Flexible scheduling and individual attention ensure students can progress at their own pace.

Stemtree is the brainchild of founder Dr. Abdelghani "Bell" Bellaachia, affectionately known as Dr. Bell. "I created Stemtree to give students the edge they need to succeed in school, career, and beyond," notes Dr. Bell. "But we can't reach them with more lectures and lessons, especially after a full day of school. That's why you will not find a traditional classroom here. Instead, we ignite the kids' passion for learning by engaging them in fun, hands-on activities. We bring basic science to life through workouts in science, technology, and engineering."

Stemtree Education Center first opened its doors in October, 2014. During the week, after school programs are offered at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, with optional pick up at local elementary schools. Students enjoy snack time, play time, and workouts in science, engineering and technology, plus support for homework and test preparation as needed. A home school program is available weekdays. Summer camp keeps kids busy and engaged each year from June - August. Fun, science-related birthday parties can be hosted on request.
