About the #SC4FutureFrontiers Campaign

Today’s students are tomorrow’s innovators. But too many lose interest in crucial subjects like science, technology, engineering and math at an early age. This limits their opportunities in life and their career options in a global economy.

To succeed in a rapidly changing world, students and learners of all ages need exposure to a variety of fields, chances to work with their peers in real-world scenarios, and experiences that open their eyes to new possibilities for the future.

The #SC4FutureFrontiers Campaign supports STEM education, exploration and engagement through missions, initiatives and projects in the Challenger Learning Center at St. Clair County Community College (SC4), housed within SC4’s Experience Center.

Help support and inspire tomorrow's leaders and scientists by participating in the #SC4FutureFrontiers campaign today. Then, please help spread the word. 

How you can help!

Help make the #SC4FutureFrontiers campaign a success by doing any/all of the below!

Big or small, every gift counts. Lead by example and make a gift yourself. Gifts to the #SC4FutureFrontiers campaign help fund seats on missions, transportation to the Center and capital improvements. Every $25 gift can fund one seat on a shuttle mission. (Example: A $750 gift would fund one class of 30 students to visit the Challenger Center.)
