The Challenger Center engages students in awe-inspiring, simulated space mission adventures that include a realistic Mission Control room and orbiting Spacecraft – designed with guidance from NASA. Students are transformed into astronauts, flight controllers, scientists and even journalists as they work collaboratively to solve problems, make decisions, and share in the thrill of discovery. NYCCSSE is one of a network of 48 centers around the world – each giving students the experience of living and working in a place humans have been observing and questioning for centuries: outer space.
