Challenger Learning Center: Propel Young Minds into the Cosmos

The Challenger Learning Center of Colorado, born from the legacy of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, stands as a beacon of inspiration and education in space science. Here, we ignite young minds with a passion for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through hands-on, immersive learning experiences.

Our mission simulators in Colorado and interactive programs allow students to experience the thrill of space exploration. Inside our classrooms-turned-cockpits, every child has a front-row seat to the universe. These experiences not only teach essential STEM skills but also foster curiosity and imagination.
