Planetarium & Laser Shows

Special thank you to Everwise Credit Union for helping us expand our ability to explore so we could reach our Destination - Mars! With their help we were able to purchase new planetarium experiences and develop a brand new Mars program!

The Challenger Learning Center of NWI is proud to offer full-dome Planetarium Shows and the only LASER Experience in Northwest Indiana!

We offer several ways for you to enjoy our exciting and educational dome shows as well as dazzling LASER shows. Book a show for your group as a single event or with a hands-on activity in our Science Lab! Planetarium shows are also available to add on to your booked mission for an additional fee (inquire for pricing).
