Challenger Learning Center
The Challenger Learning Center of Lockport utilizes space exploration as a central theme to create positive learning experiences that elevate students' expectations for success and cultivate a long-term interest in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM), thereby motivating them to pursue careers in these fields. Our programs are available year-round and cater to a diverse range of interests and ages. We are constantly developing and updating new events and programs, many of which are flexible and available during after-school hours, evenings, and weekends to accommodate busy schedules. Join us as we embark on voyages to the Moon, Mars, and beyond!
Our primary objectives are to provide hands-on, interactive educational experiences to students of all ages throughout Western New York and enhance the quality of education in the region by offering cutting-edge training, professional development opportunities, and curriculum resources for classroom teachers. Challenger Learning conducts simulated missions for school groups as a culminating experience to an interdisciplinary classroom curriculum that emphasizes Common Core Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and 21st Century Learning Skills. Our ultimate aim is to increase student interest in STEM careers by raising awareness of the opportunities available in these fields.
