In 2019, Woodstock Community Unit School District 200 took over the Challenger Learning Center from nearby Aurora University.
Each year, district fifth graders travel to Woodstock’s Challenger Learning Center, now housed at Olsen Elementary, to collaborate on STEM-driven activities in a replica space station.
The learning center is full of technology such as interactive displays and whiteboards that foster collaboration and help make the experience more realistic.
