"I do not know what else to say except, 'Wow!' What an amazing experience this mission was for my students and for me as an educator."

eMission Scenarios

e-Missions™ are distance learning videoconference simulations in which students connect with a flight director at the Challenger Learning Center and use their problem solving skills and math and science abilities to work their way through a scenario fraught with crises. Each year more than 750 video connections are made to classrooms around the world. In fact, e-Missions have now been delivered to 14 countries in addition to the United States.  President George W. Bush even took part in an e-Mission in 2004. Check out down below the many interesting scenarios you can try out.
