Thank you for your interest in Summer 2022 programs at the Challenger Learning Center.
We’re excited to share our line-up of summer STEM Camps for 2022. All registration will be conducted via Google form, which is linked below. Detailed information regarding payment options (checks and credit cards accepted) is included on the registration form.
For in-person options, health protocols (such as masks and social distancing) will be followed.
From nanobots to rovers, robots are changing our world. Participants will discover the importance of teamwork and innovation as they complete robotic design challenges. If you have always wanted to build robots and explore different robotic systems – this camp is for you!
Investigate planets, moons, stars, constellations, and more as you become a Jr. Space Explorer! Campers will participate in hands-on space activities using Star Lab, designing a space habitat, and using augmented and virtual reality.
What will it take to live in space? Participants will train to become astronauts in preparation for their simulated space mission to Mars. Training includes astronomy, robotics, experiments, and 3-D printing. Join us this summer to experience NASA based simulations, new creations and tons of inspiration!
GEMS’ mission is to interest young women who might not otherwise give serious thought to becoming scientists or engineers. It includes grade-appropriate, hands-on activities, in areas such as engineering, mathematics, computer science, environmental science, chemistry, biology, and of course some astronomy, too.
Become a real life superhero! Hide your secret identity and create a Super persona for yourself! Campers will learn about how super powers work in real life: how you can really become invisible, methods of flight, and the mechanics of superspeed.
Learn all about how to survive in a worst-case scenario! Find out how best to build a fire, where to build shelter, and different kinds of edible plants right where you live. Discover the best kinds of materials to keep on you, how to build an emergency kit, and even how different organisms have adapted to survive different harsh conditions.
(This experience is being offered to students who would typically visit Challenger during their 5th grade year, but due to COVID, were unable to attend.)
Our Expedition Mars scenario puts young learners in charge of a simulated flight between Mars and Phobos. Students are transformed into astronauts, scientists, and engineers with a single common purpose – the success of the mission. Teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and decision making skills are put to the test.
