Challenger Learning Center New Mexico (CLCNM)

  |  Map & Directions
CLCNM a non-profit educational organization, one of over 50 of the Challenger Learning Centers around the world. It provides interactive, educational space simulations for school aged students, grades K-12, with more programs to come!

During a simulation, students apply critical thinking, problem solving, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and other skills they have learned in school to successfully rendezvous with Comet Encke and gather comet particles. This simulation shows students that the topics they are studying have real-life applications and are stepping stones to rewarding and exciting careers. The comet simulation curriculum is carefully aligned with both New Mexico State and National curricular standards. Students leave a mission with a feeling of achievement and success, and a more purposeful view of what they are learning in school.
