About Challenger Space Center
Educational programs are the backbone of the Challenger Center. All of our programs are designed to meet or exceed Arizona state educational standards. All programs are specially designed to meet educational standards set for Math, Science, Technology and Workplace Skills.
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
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.
