Apollo 11 - 50th Anniversary

  • Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing at the Challenger Learning Center! Hear accounts of the Apollo 11 mission and learn the latest about NASA’s vision for space exploration. Then, take your place with fellow crew members as you fly your very own moon mission! Adults do not need to attend with a child. However, children ages 10-15 must be accompanied by a participating adult. Each person must register for the class.

  • It’s one small step for man, one giant leap for families at the CLC this summer! Fifty years ago, on this day, the first human set foot on the moon. Celebrate with us by getting up close and personal with our neighbor moon through hands-on activities, crafts, videos, stories, and more. You’ll even learn about the
    next “small steps” and “giant leaps” NASA plans to take as we fly around our solar system in a simulated spacecraft! Each parent and child must register for the class.
