The Challenger Learning Center of Northwest Indiana offers STEM learning opportunities for educators, school groups, businesses and communities located in Indiana, Chicagoland, Illinois and Michigan. We invite you to Explore our Space!
There are many ways to enjoy a Challenger Learning Center science experience!
When students walk into a Challenger Learning Center, they are transported to a cutting-edge Mission Control room and a high-tech Space Station. Whether the mission is flying to the Moon, intercepting a comet, visiting Mars or studying the Earth from the International Space Station, it’s an unforgettable learning experience they’re sure to talk about for years to come!
Take a look.
We hear so many of our adult guests say, “I wish I could have done this when I was a kid!” We agree! But since we don’t have a time machine, we can give you a chance to try out a mission as an adult! Our Date Night missions are a perfect bonding opportunity to see if you have “The Right Stuff.” Bring your sweetie and fly to the Moon in February, or Kiss Under the Stars in August.

Bring your space explorers to experience the magic of the night sky as well as a variety of entertaining and educational shows under the dazzling display of the Robert H. Rivers Planetarium.
