3D Building Tours is about to take you to the Challenger Learning Center. The Challenger Learning Center of the Twin Tier Region is one of 43 Challenger Learning Centers worldwide.  These centers are dedicated in memory of the Space Shuttle Challenger Mission crew members. Their mission was inspired by education.  Furthermore, the mission of the CLC  is to introduce the youth of our area to the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This Center is also known as the Dresser-Rand CLC because of the company’s significant role in making this center a reality. Additionally, local companies and organizations like Cutco, and St Bonaventure University generously contributed. With the help of then-congressman Randy Kuhl Jr., Our local Challenger Learning Center was built!

Learning Center Background         360Rize Challenger 2

Since 2009 students ages kindergarten to middle school ages have experienced the Challenger Learning Center. The CLC shows the way space exploration uses science, math, and technology in real-world situations. In addition, students learn to communicate and problem solve during the simulated operation of the orbiting space station. Students learn teamwork is important. They also learn that these test missions are achievable fields they can later consider for a career. Students leave the CLC inspired to pursue careers in fields they may have previously thought were out of reach for them. The CLC exists for this very reason of showing students to take control of their destiny’s!

After exiting this place, students enter the Transport Space Station (launch room). Here they will strap themselves into their seats and virtually experience a lift-off in a Space Shuttle. Lastly, they will make their way tot he Mission Control room to show them the experience of those who monitor the brave souls that launch into space.

How Do I Build a 3D Building Tour?

If you d like to know more about how to film your own 3D Building Tour, we have the tool for you! Our 360Penguin camera is well equipped to capture every spot in your establishment for a high-resolution virtual walkthrough. First-time users can use this technology to capture this type of tour!  Using our 360Penguin camera, one can take fully spherical 360 shots in multiple locations. Furthermore, each shot can be linked together to create the walkthrough. There are many different platforms that help assemble your shots later. We prefer to use one by the name Kuula. This is the most user-friendly process for a first time virtual tour producer!! Check out one of our office taken with the 360Penguin and Kuula Below!
