How to Participate: A Guided Tour

Intrigued by CLCofMe, but still require a greater understanding of exactly how the mission experience works? Take a guided tour of the mission experience- a comprehensive explanation of the purpose, planning, events, and outcomes of our exciting missions.

We'll walk you through each of the three steps of the mission process. First, we'll explain the necessary forms, training, and classroom preparation required. Then, we'll show you what it's like on a mission. Next, we'll show you how to continue the excitement and learning back in your classroom. We finish with a step-by-step guide to registering your classroom for the mission experience.

Educators are often wowed by the experience of the Challenger Learning Center, yet they all have one question: what learning results can CLCofME demonstrate? Even educators who are comfortable with our learning experiences are still eager to document learning results so that they can demonstrate to school administrators that the CLCofMe experience is not just fun, but valuable! At CLCofMe, we've compiled a valuable set of learning results and organized it for you to view and/or download.
