On Friday, November 15, the Challenger Learning Center in Columbia, SC, is hosting their third annual Aerospace Career Day. They’ll have a variety of representatives from businesses and colleges (a list from last year is below*) present to talk to students.

There is no cost to participate, but here are their requirements for attendance:

- high school students (and their parents, if they drive them) *only*
- no younger siblings or students than high school age can attend
- the hours for this event is 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, but they don’t mind if homeschool students trickle in throughout that time. However, don’t arrive earlier than 9:00 am, and don’t stay later than 1:00 pm.
