Educator Resources

We are currently closed for onsite programming for the public through the Alamo Colleges District’s protocols to protect community health and safety. We look forward to being able to provide in person programming again in the Spring of 2022, until then, please, refer to the virtual resources being made available through our Challenger and Planetarium programming!

Virtual Challenger Missions

Interested in Virtual Missions? The Challenger Learning Center team has developed two virtual missions which may be experienced in a classroom, hybrid or entirely virtual environment. Each mission requires students to be working individually on their internet supported device as a member of a team. Students on each team will work with their colleagues to undertake research and analysis tasks to successfully complete their mission. Each mission is led by a Scobee Commander and runs for approximately 45 to 60 minutes and may support 8 to 24 students depending upon the mission selected. A $100 fee is charged for each mission.
