The award winning Challenger Learning Center is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to continuing the mission of the astronauts who lost their lives in the 1986 Challenger shuttle accident.
We provide hands-on space education programs to schools, corporations, community organizations and the general public.
The center features a replica space station and Mission Control center, where you can participate in a simulated space mission and be engaged in an unforgettable experience involving activities similar to those performed by NASA astronauts, scientists and engineers.
We are an interactive art studio. Dip your hand in wax, preserve a real rose in wax, make a hand-print paining, dye a candle, paint and decorate a flower pot, put together a bouquet of wooden roses or purchase spray paint art by an OIF/OEF Air Force Wounded Warrior.
