Open Year Round

The Challenger Learning Center of Kentucky is one in a network of 47 Challenger Learning Centers which were started by the families of the Challenger Astronauts tragically killed in the 1986 Space Shuttle disaster. The Challenger Learning Center of Kentucky was the 34th center in the network and the first located in a rural area. Our mission is to demonstrate the importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in our everyday lives and how fun and exciting these topics can be. The Center started in 1999 and hosts approximately 7,500 students per year in the various programs we offer.challenger2.jpg
The CLCKY provides a first class, space-based learning environment where schoolchildren, families, senior citizens, corporate teams and other community members “fly” simulated space missions. The CLCKY features a Mission Control Center modeled after the one at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, a Transporter/Space Shuttle, and a Spacecraft/Space Station simulator where experiments are performed and probes are assembled and “launched” into the depths of outer space.
