If you think about it, your child might someday travel to Mars.  Or at least the Moon.  With Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos talking about space travel becoming as realistic as airplane travel is today, who knows. With that being said, maybe this summer your child is ready for some inspiration to stir the mind and learn all about outer space.

Summer classes for The Challenger Learning Center of Maine in Bangor are now forming. It is time to book a challenger in person Rocket program for your summer school, rec group, camp, or library.  Stem focused fun, and it comes to you. It is a one hour, hands on engineering design challenge that can be done inside or outside.  Students will work through the engineering design process and build a NASA themed rocket. All made out of paper.  And it is a program that can be altered to engage students from 1st to 8th grade.  You can book here and dates are available for late June and in July and August.
