The Challenger Learning Center of Alaska's vision is to have every school in Alaska experiencing the wonders of education through its simulated space missions, e-Missions, and workshops each year. Through the medium of a dynamic, hands-on space exploration simulator students will learn to develop skills in decision making, teamwork, problem-solving, and communication. Students are encouraged to pursue higher educational goals and opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) that will better prepare them to successfully compete in the 21st Century global marketplace. Challenger provides several services such as a rental space for meetings and events, simulated space missions, STEM workshops, professional development, dorm rentals, team building, private camps, summer camps, day camps, homeschool programs, community events, birthday party packages, Galactic Gift shop, free tours, and just an all-around great place to visit!
