Experience a simulation where failure is an option on the way to developing new paths for success.
Take on the roles of astronaut crew and mission controllers as you launch and attempt a voyage to Mars. Challenge your communication and collaboration skills and creativity as you tackle mission critical tasks, find solutions to emergencies, and strive to reach your goals. See skills and behaviors emerge during the simulation that mirror workplace situations and dynamics, providing fertile ground for reflection, discussion, and future development.
As a leader in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, Challenger Center and its international network of more than 40 Challenger Learning Centers use space-themed simulated learning environments to engage students in dynamic, hands-on opportunities. These experiences strengthen knowledge in STEM subjects and inspire students to pursue careers in these important fields. Challenger Learning Center Sacramento is part of the global network that reaches hundreds of thousands of students and tens of thousands of teachers each year. Founded in 1986, Challenger Center was created to honor the crew of shuttle flight STS-51L.
