Inspire, Explore, Learn... It's Our Mission 

Welcome to the Challenger Learning Center!

Please note that we are exclusively open to schools, organizations, and homeschool groups for full-day STEM experiences. Thank you for understanding we do not offer tours to the general public. Our focus is on providing immersive educational programs for students in grades 5-8 and summer programs for grades K-8. We look forward to inspiring young minds through hands-on STEM experiences at the Challenger Learning Center.

Educators, sign up now for STEM experiences!
