Be an astronaut for a day! By combining learning with fun, the Town of Ramapo Challenger Center allows “kids” of all ages to experience what it is like to be an astronaut. Whether you come to the Challenger Center with a school class or scout troop, for a birthday party or public mission, with a group of campers or fellow co-workers, the simulated but realistic space missions will take you on a journey you will never forget. Participating “astronauts” select a job to perform in a realistic Mission Control and Spacecraft environment, and conduct research, perform hands-on scientific experiments, and solve emergencies, as they voyage to the Moon, to Mars, or to a Comet. School, after-school, scout, party, public, camp and corporate programs are available. And we have flight simulators and a planetarium too! A program at the Challenger Center is an engaging, entertaining, and fun learning experience that will last a lifetime.
