This summer, the Challenger Learning Center of Greater Rochester, a program of Monroe One BOCES, will relocate to its new home at the Kodak Center, 200 West Ridge Road. Monroe One BOCES has signed an agreement with Eastman Kodak Company to lease a space that will provide the Challenger Learning Center the opportunity to expand its operations. Space missions will continue in the current space at the Rochester Museum & Science Center through June and will resume in the new location in fall 2019.
The interactive program engages over 10,000 students from more than 17 school districts each year. Commanders Peter Robson and Andy Raab lead students on a mission into space in which they use their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills and problem-solving, critical thinking and communication skills.
“We are thrilled to enter into a partnership with Eastman Kodak Company,” said Monroe One BOCES District Superintendent Dan White. “Not only does the lease agreement secure the Challenger Learning Center of Greater Rochester as a learning center for students for years to come, the lease provides for a fresh, new and exciting space in which the program can look to expand and thrive.”
