Describe the Activity:
The Challenger programs serves approximately 8000 students and several hundred teachers each year in a service area that includes Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Programs include simulated space missions that reinforce and introduce students to real-world applications of STEM principles. Students have the opportunity to participate in Full or Mini Missions, in which they conduct research and solve problems about Outer Space.
Contact your local Challenger Center for available programs, including the required time spent there.
Typically, full missions cost $500. Other programming is also available, depending on the center.
The number of people and eligible grade levels depends on the location and the type of program selected.
Outcome of the Activity:
Students learn about Outer Space in an environment where they must work together to complete the mission.
