Challenger Learning Center®
Today the success of your business depends on a team who communicates effectively to solve real-world problems. In Chabot Space & Science Center’s team-building program in the challenger Learning Center, you and your staff will fly a simulated space mission. In the mission, "Crew" members will utilize skills such as:

Challenger Learning Center is available for school field trips. Check our calendar of events for special missions we offer during weekends and on special event days. Learn more about Chabot's Challenger Learning Center and its history.
Challenger Learning Center’s focus on teamwork is a perfect catalyst for corporate team building. The unique learning environment demands the attention of the participants, captures their imagination and drives home your training message in a dramatic and memorable way.
The key is simulation. Instead of squinting at overheads, participants are thrown into a demanding space mission that forces them to work together to survive a life and death scenario. The success of the mission depends on effective communication and problem solving skills. The mission shatters routine conference room trainings with an unforgettable staff experience!
