About the Challenger Learning Center:
The Challenger Learning Center is part of a network of centers in North America, established through the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, headquartered in Alexandria, VA. It is the living legacy of the seven crew members who embarked on a mission in 1986 that ended in great tragedy. Their families founded the center to keep their mission alive and well. Their mission to learn, explore and inspire lives on in Dayton’s Challenger Learning Center.
