The Challenger Learning Center offers simulated space missions and other science education programs for schools, scouts, corporations and the general public. The Challenger Center-St. Louis is a partnership of the Ferguson-Florissant School District, Saint Louis Science Center and EducationPlus. The Center is part of the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, an international not-for-profit education organization found in April 1986 by the families of the astronauts tragically lost during the Challenger space shuttle mission.
You and your kids can learn about space, science, the solar system and lots more in a fun, hands-on way during Public Missions at the Challenger Learning Center. Simulated Space missions are geared for families with kids ages 6 and up, and some for families with kids ages 11 and up.
Wagon rides, live entertainment, great festival foods, a petting zoo and much more make this an apple pickin' good time for the whole family. There will be pony rides, a children's carnival, opportunities to feed goats and other farm animals, caramel apples, funnel cakes and more.
Kids can enjoy bubble fun from The Magic House, the St. Louis Police Department Operation Polar Cops ice cream truck, face painting, games, and explore the St. Louis Fire Department fire truck. There will be 300 free lunches provided for children 12 and under.
