Tiger Team: When Things Go Wrong

Tiger Team promotional image
The Challenger Learning Center of Lake Erie West offers distance learning opportunities that will bring the excitement of a simulated space emergency into your classroom. True to the Challenger Center philosophy, this simulation emphasizes experiential activities that promote teamwork, problem solving, communication and decision making skills. The "Tiger Team" seeks to find the solution to a simulated water emergency aboard the space transport vehicle, a similar task to the oxygen emergency that faced the crew of Apollo 13. Your students will devise solutions, test these solutions, modify and retest as needed, and instruct the spacecraft commander as to the implementation of the solution.
