Mission Statement

The Mission of the Challenger Space Center is to inspire, excite and educate people of all ages about the mysteries and wonders of space, science and the universe in which we live...

Description

The Challenger Space Center provides an exciting space-based learning environment where schoolchildren, families, senior citizens, corporate teams and others fly simulated space flight missions where they become flight crews, mission controllers and scientists.

Flight missions, led by Challenger Flight Directors, seamlessly integrate the concepts of teamwork, communications and leadership, along with math, science and technology skills, to help participants work together to overcome obstacles and emergencies and complete a successful mission.

Equal to education missions designed for students and their teachers, the Space Center -- a community resource center -- also features numerous public programming opportunities including stargazing, an indoor planetarium, space camps, lectures, telescope classes, space storytelling and more, to enable families, youth groups, Scout troops, community members, corporate teams, senior citizens and others to experience the awe-inspiring Center's 21,433 square foot facility and all that she has to offer.

Would you recommend Challenger Space Center?

by Daniel S. (2010-09-15 13:26:38.0)
I would recommend The Challenger Memorial because I believe that space travel is important to our survival here on Earth. Our children and their grandchildren will see the profit gained from space research and travel that we endevour to do today.
