NORTHVILLE, Mich. (WXYZ) — A new play area for children centered around the idea of STEM-learning has just opened its doors in downtown Northville.

Stemville is now open in the Old Church Square inside a second level space filled with toys geared towards STEM-learning. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

“I think there’s a big focus nowadays to get your kids involved in these subjects at an early age, especially with the way that the world is going,” said co-owner Kristin Arneson.

Arneson and Andreea Harrington are co-owners of Stemville. They thought the concept up over New Years Eve and now, eight months later, they are open for business.

“Obviously, there is nothing out there like this, so we didn’t know what reaction we would get, but it’s been a positive one,” said Harrington.

Stemville is open Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays are open for party reservations.

Children over the age of two years old cost $20, which includes one adult. Additional adults cost $10 and there is no cost for children under the age of two accompanied with a sibling. Monthly memberships to Stemville are also available.

Parents are asked to book a reservation online as to make sure there is enough space for everyone.
