The Challenger Learning Center in Kenai looks small from the outside, but is big on fun and learning on the inside. We just attended a free family night in honor of the 30 year anniversary of the Challenger crew. My two boys loved every second of their time.

Sadly each visit back it became more... More

I can do this for much less $ and much more creativity. I was disappointed! I timed our Instructor for 2 minutes and she said "Okay" more than 80 times...

I was given a full tour of the facility and while students were there at the time, I was able tosee exactly what you could do. I was utterly amazed that this was available to our youth's of today. It was a wonderful experience and learning process. I have also attended meetings and dinner banquets at the Challenger Center and... More

Held 2 town hall meetings here for our project. Everyone was great to work with when it came to setting up the room. I highly recommend it.
