The Challenger Learning Center of Greater Rochester is a high-tech, hands-on facility for space flight simulations located at Strasenburgh Planetarium. Coordinated by "Mission Commanders" from Monroe #1 BOCES, this unique experience is educational and fun.
The Challenger Center operates primarily for fifth-grade school classes, but also offers summer camps and occasional public missions. For public missions, children must be at least 7 years old. Children ages 7 to 10 must be teamed one-to-one with an adult. Reservations are required. For information on future public missions call (585) 697-1942.
