The Challenger Learning Center of Greater Rochester was created to inspire students' interest in science and math. When students fly their Mission to Mars, not only do they have fun, but they also exercise the development of their Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) process skills by completing curriculum-based activities aligned with New York State Learning Standards. Every single student is 100% engaged in a truly state of the art facility that incorporates hands-on science activities that help improve problem-solving skills and enhance creative and critical-thinking abilities.
It is the first discovery of wreckage from the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger in more than 25 years.
Created to inspire students’ interest in science and math, students fly their Mission to Mars while having fun and exercising STEM process skills.
Each year, content providers made up of museums, science centers, art galleries, zoos, aquariums, musicians, and authors are recognized through the CILC’s Pinnacle Award.
