Explore with the Challenger Learning Center – St. Louis

The award-winning Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis provides space education programs for schools, corporations, scouts, community groups and the general public. At the core of the Center are state-of-the-art space simulators, which includes a space station and a Mission Control center modeled after NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

The facility is part of the Challenger Center for Space Science Education, an international not-for-profit education organization founded in April 1986 by the families of the astronauts tragically lost during the Challenger space shuttle mission.

The Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis is located in north St. Louis County and is supported by a partnership that includes the Ferguson-Florissant School District, the Saint Louis Science Center and Education Plus.
