|The Buehler Challenger & Science Center is a
not-for-profit science education organization.
Invest In Our Children's Future
Many children decide, during their elementary years, that they
have no interest in science, math and technology. At the same
time, there is a rapidly increasing need for chemists,
biologists, physicists, technologists and engineers. The Buehler
Challenger & Science Center is working to help close this gap by
providing unique hands-on experiences that raise students'
expectations of success, foster in them a long-term interest in
science, math and technology, and motivate them to pursue
careers in these fields.
This is your opportunity to climb aboard and help the Buehler
Center continue bringing this exciting learning experience to
over 20,000 young people each year!
Where Would Your Money Go?
Currently, there are three funds established that are supported
through corporate, foundation and individual gifts. When giving,
you may choose to designate your gift to any one of the
following funds, or you may choose to make an "unrestricted"

go, based on greatest need.
- The Capital/Endowment Fund is used to reduce the
debt of the loan for the building and the flight simulators.

associated with operating the Center.

needy students to participate in various Challenger Learning
