THE CHALLENGE – More than a quarter million students and teachers across the United States, Canada and England will experience the excitement of space exploration this year as part of Challenger Learning Center simulation programs. Merging the power of a child’s imagination with the excitement of discovery, students become engineers and scientists as they Voyage to Mars. Students work as teams in mission control and aboard a space station as they test their decision-making skills, solve problems and communicate by alternative means during this innovative space-themed science and math lesson. Teachers prepare students using both pre- and post-flight activities that integrate the experience into traditional classroom instruction.

The Student Experience

As students enter the Challenger Learning Center, they embark upon an exciting new form of discovery learning. As skills are sharpened in the area of mathematics, science and technology, students have the opportunity of successfully completing a space mission.

The Mission: Voyage To Mars

In Earth years, it is 2076, and a now routine Voyage to Mars has brought the latest crew into Martian orbit. Control of the incoming flight has been transferred from Houston’s Mission Control to Mars Control at Chryse Station. The crew arriving from Earth on the Mars Transport Vehicle has been specially trained to replace the existing crew of astronauts, which has manned Mars Control for the past two years and to continue their scientific explorations.
