Not only did they reach their goal,  it was tripled by raising a total of $2,304.37! The winning class will receive a pasta party from Olive Garden. Way to go above and beyond to help find a cure for blood cancers!

What's It Like To Orbit Earth?

Students at Judson Middle School have a better idea of what it's like to be in space.  Science Teacher Mr. Queller initiated this idea through a generous grant from the Nijam Foundation to participate in Earth Odyssey...a STEM program at the Challenger Center.  

This newest project at the Scobee Planetarium brings science to life in a way that gives students a chance to take what they've learned in the classroom and see it work in a real life scenario. This happens through Project Based Learning in this state of the art simulated space environment that is a blast for the kids and just makes learning engaging and fun.
