And after nearly two years of operation at Sparks High School, the CLCNN is moving to the National Automobile Museum on Lake Street in Reno!
I asked Melodi Rodrigue, president of the CLCNN, how the idea of a Northern Nevada Challenger Learning Center began.
"Paul McFarlane, current flight director of the CLCNN, had taken a couple of his high school classes from Hug High to the Challenger Learning Center in Sacramento, and the students loved it,” she said. “On one of the visits, some of the students asked why there wasn't a Challenger Center in Reno. Paul said, ‘That's a good question!’ and off we went!
“The CLCNN was formed about eight years ago as a nonprofit and has worked ever since to bring the CLC experience to our community.”
If you visit the CLCNN at the Auto Museum, be prepared for an imaginative team-building experience incorporating experiential learning into an exciting space mission.
