Challenger Learning Center

Mission Statement:

The Challenger Learning Center of Tallahassee is the principal public outreach operation of the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. Our missions include the provision to K-12 students of standards-aligned, high-quality “hands-on” educational experiences in science and engineering through the use of high-fidelity aerospace simulators. Our state-of-the art, large-format and domed digital theaters significantly augment our ability to accomplish this mission through exhibition of thematically related large-format films and planetarium programs. Our mission also is to provide the general public with stunningly unique, hugely entertaining audio-visual experiences through acquisition for, and exhibition in, the theaters of the best films and programs available.

Vision Statement:

To be the recognized regional leader in informal science education and to be the leading destination for a regional audience of the absolute best in large-format film and planetarium programs anywhere.
