Challenger Learning Center of Northwest Indiana


The Challenger Learning Center of Northwest Indiana is a space science education center that opened its doors in 1999 on the campus of Purdue University Calumet in Hammond, Indiana. Despite our premier location, we are not operated by Purdue University Calumet and are dependent on individual gifts, corporate gifts, grants, and program revenue. Our non-profit center is part of a network of international learning centers that endeavor to carry on the educational mission of the Challenger 51-L crew and the first Teacher in Space, Christa McAuliffe. Through mission simulations, e-Missions (distance learning), hands-on science activity labs, sky voyages (planetarium program), corporate missions and numerous family & community programs, over 160,000 students and adults have visited our learning center to experience the excitement of our original programming.
