Mission and Vision Statements
The Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee is the principal public outreach operation of the FAMU-FSU
College of Engineering. Our missions include the provision to K-12 students of standards-aligned, high-quality “hands-on”
educational experiences in science and engineering through the use of high-fidelity aerospace simulators. Our state-of-the art,
large-format and domed digital theaters significantly augment our ability to accomplish this mission through exhibition of
thematically related large-format films and planetarium programs. Our mission also is to provide the general public with stunningly
unique, hugely entertaining audio-visual experiences through acquisition for and exhibition in the theaters of the best films
and programs available.
To be the recognized regional leader in informal science education and to be the leading destination
for a regional audience of the absolute best in large-format film and planetarium programs anywhere.
