|Missions and More|
The Challenger Learning Center of Maine offers simulation of space missions to fourth through tenth grade students. Merging the power of imagination with the joy of discovery, students become engineers and scientists as they experience the excitement of space exploration in these simulations. Students work as teams in mission control and aboard a space station as they test their decision-making skills, solve problems, and communicate with one another during this innovative science and math lesson. Teachers prepare students using both pre- and post-flight activities that integrate the experience into traditional classroom instruction.
The Challenger Learning Center of Maine curently offers "Rendezvous with a Comet", "Return to the Moon" and "Earth from Orbit."
