About this event:
The Challenger Learning Center of Richland County School District One is an aerospace-themed educational program designed to provide interactive learning experiences, integrating science and math curricula with information and technology. Through various simulations, scenarios, and activities we offer, students develop skills in decision making, teamwork, problem solving, and communication.
By engaging students in dynamic, hands-on exploration and discovery opportunities that strengthen knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the Challenger Learning Center inspires students to pursue careers in these fields.

Straw Rockets for age 4-8 $7 per child and per adult
Students construct and launch a straw rocket to learn about force and motion.
Moon Mission for age 9+ $10 per child and per adult.
For the first time since 1972, a crew of astronauts is returning to the Moon. This time, they plan to stay. Their mission is to establish a permanent base on the Moon to observe and explore, as well as test the feasibility of off-Earth settlements. Navigating their way into lunar orbit, students must construct and launch a probe and then analyze a variety of data gathered from the lunar surface to select a site for establishing the permanent Moon base.
Adults and students both pay the admission price, prepay only.
