The Buehler Challenger & Science Center is a New Jersey Professional Development Provider.  We offer full-day teacher workshops for teachers new to the Center, as well as returning educators.  Choose from one of the following options:

Teacher Workshop

Educators bringing students for a mission for the 2024/2025 school year MUST attend the mission workshop for which they are registered. The teacher(s) preparing students for the mission will also need to attend a mandatory teacher work shop, even if previously trained in Comet, Moon, or Mars workshops.

Expedition Mars

The teacher will receive the Expedition Mars curriculum binder filled with pre- and post-flight lesson plans, participate in several hands-on activities, as well as “fly” an Expedition Mars mission for a “first-hand” experience. Please note that we are an accredited facility and teachers will receive a certificate confirming that they completed six professional development hours.
