Challenger Learning Center Endowment Fund
After the Challenger STS-51L tragedy, the families of the seven crew members decided a living legacy would be the best way to honor and memorialize their loved ones. Through their commitment to building a tribute that would long fulfill the crew’s educational mission, they established Challenger Center for Space Science Education in April 1986. That vision has grown to more than 40 Challenger Learning Centers all over the world.

At the Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee, we seek to provide an exciting, engaging, and rewarding experience that will stay with them far beyond their trip to our Center. Each year, over 40,000 students from Florida, Georgia, and Alabama get to experience classroom lessons brought to life.

The simulated environment is created from computer technology, real science data, hands-on activities and STEM content. Complete with a mission control room and “orbiting” space station, students become astronauts, scientists, engineers, researchers, journalists and artists all sharing the thrill of discovery.

Challenger Learning Center students are our future leaders and innovators who will help advance and improve our quality of life for generations to come, and we need your help inspiring them to achieve that goal.
