Rendezvous with a Comet at Challenger Learning Center

Join us at the Challenger Learning Center at Heartland Community College for this exciting mission!

Step on board the space station to conduct experiments and prepare to launch a probe to a comet. Work as a team in mission control as you navigate through space, monitor the crew’s health, and solve problems. Halfway through the mission, switch places with your teammates to experience both the space station and mission control.

This activity is for kids ages 11-15. Registration is required and begins May 25 at 9 am. Space is limited.
