Science happens every Saturday at the CLC! SCIturdays at the Challenger Learning Center are designed for you and your child to learn new skills while having fun together! On the second and fourth Saturday of the month, join us for a hands-on, family-friendly workshop featuring a STEAM topic: science, technology, engineering, art and/or mathematics. Discover new interests and engage in a fun-filled morning!

The Challenger Learning Center is a part of the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and as a campus facility, face coverings are required in all indoor facilities. Individuals will not be permitted to attend face-to-face classes, take part in other events or access services indoors without the proper face coverings.
