Additional Information:

More than a half million students and teachers across the United States, Canada, and England will experience the excitement of space exploration this year as part of Challenger Center simulation programs.  The Buehler Challenger & Science Center offers students the next best thing to actual space flight with two simulators, a mission control room designed after NASA Johnson Space Center and a space station laboratory.  Here students work in teams to monitor life support, conduct experiments and investigations, and implement navigation orders.  In this dynamic environment, students use principles of science, mathematics and technology to complete their tasks.

The Buehler Challenger & Science Center's experience is designed to provide your class with a broad, enriching experience.  To maximize this experience, teachers are required to attend a pre-mission workshop to be able to prepare their students for their Challenger mission.
