Challenger Center’s pedagogy promotes scientific literacy by encouraging exploration and inquiry and by exciting young people about knowledge and learning. Challenger Center believes exploration is the essence of learning. Our goal is to give teachers the tools to create a learner-centered environment and to provide materials that are a framework for embedding subject content in a meaningful and motivational context. The mission scenarios are aligned with the educational standards of the State of California.
