STEM After School

Fun and engaging STEM learning for elementary and middle school students

Now Enrolling Fall 2021 in Ashburn

Mindframe will offer after school program with pickup from LCPS schools for School Year 2021-22.  Special promotional offer includes the first week free.  Registration now open.

When students come to Mindframe after school, they learn STEM skills while having fun.

They’ll create, design, build, and develop cool projects, participate in STEM competitions, accumulate a project portfolio, and get help with their regular homework. And while they’ll spend some time at a screen, they’ll do just as much away from one experimenting, playing, and interacting with peers and teachers.

Why you’ll love our after-school program

Student Learning Plan 

Each student gets a personalized learning plan that starts with a meeting. We sit down with the parents and student to understand goals and interests. Based on the discussions, we create a plan that outlines classes and projects for the student. Parents will be able to track their child’s progress via the Mindframe STEM Academy parent portal.

A variety of STEM Classes and Projects

We offer student-centered STEM classes and projects in Programming, Robotics, Game Design, Digital Arts, Engineering, Math, and Science. Students select the STEM subjects they’re interested in and take classes and work on projects to learn at their own pace.

STEM Competitions

Students will have the opportunity to participate in regional and national STEM competitions throughout the year, allowing them to demonstrate their skills and knowledge in a fun, competitive environment.

Homework Center

Each student gets personalized homework help, and Mindframe teachers record a daily log and track student assignments.

Clubs and Activities

Clubs let students learn in a team environment and include interest areas like chess, puzzles, and typing.

Academic Tutoring 

We offer 1:1 tutoring for all academic subjects at both Ashburn and new Reston locations.  After school students receive discounted tutoring rate of $25 for 30 mins.  Includes free initial assessment, learning plan and regular progress updates.
