The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is committed to fostering an interest in the engineering field through a number of outreach programs geared to high school students and high school educators.

Challenger Learning Center

The Challenger Learning Center is a 32,000 square-foot facility located on beautiful Kleman Plaza in downtown Tallahassee. The center is the K-12 outreach facility of the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and strives to foster long-term interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); create positive learning experiences; and motivate students to pursue higher education and careers in these fields. To accomplish this mission, the Challenger Learning Center features a state-of-the-art space mission simulator, an IMAX 3D theatre, a planetarium, hands-on science labs and more.


The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national, non-profit organization of middle and high school students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). TSA offers over 60 STEM competitions that take place at both state and national conferences.
