Public Missions

Bring your family and friends to the Challenger Learning Center to participate in a simulated space mission. After a brief training session, astronauts will be launched into space to complete their mission. Crew members on board a spacecraft will work with teammates in Mission Control to navigate the spacecraft, collect and analyze data using real robotic arms and glove boxes, build and launch a probe, and more.

Most of our public missions are geared towards people ages 11 and up. However, we also offer our “Jr Astronauts” mission that is specially for kids ages 6 and up.

Advanced reservations are required to participate in a public mission.*(NOTE: public missions are subject to cancellation if there are fewer than 14 people signed up. Participants will be notified of any cancellation.)
