e-Mission Simulations (grades 3-9)


Give your students an innovative learning opportunity without having to leave the classroom! Our e-Missions have your students connecting with a Challenger Center Flight Director using just a web browser to participate in an exciting scenario geared for their grade level. These simulations are designed help your students make the connection between using math, science, language and life skills in real life situations. It's so much fun, they won't even realize they're learning, too!

Grades 3-5

A crew of astronauts have become lost in space...and your class was chosen to help find their location before they run out of supplies! Students are tasked with using their math, social studies, language, problem solving, communication and teamwork skills to perform a rescue operation that will help bring the crew safely back to base! A Challenger Learning Center Flight Director links with your class via the web with a live connection to support their efforts and give immediate feedback and advice, plus provide updates on the crew's whereabouts.
