Arena STEM, a center offering a combination of entertainment, education and retail will open its flagship store at Palisades Center this Spring. The new store will be located on Level 3 near the Food Court.
Arena STEM, founded by Sergei and Julia Manevich of New Jersey, is a new and innovative retailtainment concept focused on activities in technical science, sports and hobby. It offers people of all ages the ability to interact with the products being sold through real-life models, tracks, events, contests, and classes that include 3-D drawing, robotics, modelmaking, and more.
“STEM activities have become an integral component of education in the United States and throughout the world,” said founders Sergei and Julia Manevich. “Arena STEM is a fun environment that utilizes STEM principles and fosters self-expression, critical thinking and innovation. We would be remiss if we didn’t thank our co-founder Lenny Lozinsky, and Starta Ventures’ partners, Serge Milman and Alexey Girin. They believed in our project and supported us with advice and investment.”
“Arena STEM is going to provide Palisades Center customers with a unique and immersive experience,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager of Palisades Center. “We are excited to offer our guests another great place within the Center to create, explore, and play.”
