About the CLC
The Challenger Learning Center was founded after the loss of the Challenger crew in 1986. Its mission inspires generations to accomplish things that may at first appear impossible. Students who visit the Challenger Learning Center (CLC) at Heartland Community College embark upon their very own simulated space missions. Working in a hands-on environment they apply classroom-acquired science, mathematics, English and language arts skills, and teamwork, leadership and communication skills. The CLC scholarship program allows local schools in need this amazing learning experience.
