AN EDUCATION IN EXPLORATION

The mission of the Challenger Learning Center is to engage students and teachers in dynamic, hands-on exploration and discovery opportunities that strengthen knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), inspire students to pursue careers in these fields, and provide an outlet to learn and apply important life skills.

Our primary goals include:

  • provide hands-on, real world interactive educational experiences to students of all ages throughout central Illinois.
  • conduct simulated missions for school groups as a culminating experience to an interdisciplinary classroom curriculum emphasizing Common Core Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and 21st Century Learning Skills.
  • improve the quality of Illinois education by providing state-of-the-art training and professional development opportunities and curriculum resources for classroom teachers.
  • increase student interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) careers by raising awareness of opportunities in those fields.

2014-15 SPACE MISSIONS FOR SCHOOLS

The Challenger Learning Center provides simulated space missions to central Illinois schools of K-12 students.

Kindergarten through fourth grade students take on the roles of astronauts, scientists, and engineers during their K-4 EXPLORATION mission.

Students in grades fifth through eighth become the flight controllers and astronauts during their SPACE mission to Rendezvous with a Comet, or take a Voyage to Mars.

Ninth through twelfth grade students not only become the flight controllers and astronauts during their EARTH mission, Earth Odyssey.
