Do you know that coding made it possible for man to land on the moon? Do you know that coding will get us back there one day? Maybe you could be on that crew returning to the moon! In the year of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing, now is the perfect time to join us for a fun morning of hands-on activities including a Gravity Strategy game of coding! Open to all ages!

The Challenger Center for Space Science Education, which serves as a living legacy to the seven astronauts lost on the space shuttle Challenger, for more than a quarter century has used science and math to help students build the skills most needed for the 21st century, including decision making, teamwork, problem solving, and communication.
The Challenger Learning Center in Wheeling opened in 1994 and is one of 48 centers worldwide. Since our founding we have reached more than 350,000 students and adult learners. Each year more than 30,000 students fly missions either here on site in Wheeling or via videoconferencing through our e-Missions™ program.
