Aspiring astronauts, scientists and engineers ages 8-18 will have a "blast" at the award-winning Challenger Learning Center where they can explore space, science, art, and technology through simulated space missions and other out-of-this-world activities.
Space adventurers can travel to the Moon or Mars, explore Comets, or train in an underwater environment in SCUBA gear. Future engineers can design, build and inhabit a life-size lunar colony or build remote-controlled rovers and rockets with 3D printed parts. Specialty camps include: Advanced Rocketeering, Sports in Space, Aquatic Robotics, and Innovators Workshop.
