Welcome to Archon, we are in our 40th year.

Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis.

Archon has chosen the Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis to be the recipient of the charity proceeds raised during the various fund-raising events held throughout the weekend. The award-winning Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis provides space education programs for schools, corporations, Scouts, community groups and the public.

As a long time supporter of Archon’s charities auction in the past or if you are a first time donator, we hope you will be able to help us again or the first time by donation items to the charity auction, such as gift certificates, collectible items, action figures, signs, art work, signed or unsigned books, DVD movies, music CD's, tour certificates or anything else that might appeal to a fan base that will number in the thousands.

Archon and the Challenger Learning Center Saint Louis would appreciate your support. Last year's events rose over $4000 for the Learning Center. Your donations in the past have helped us raise over $29,000 for the archon charities during the years I have been associated with the auction .

The auction will be held the Saturday afternoon of the convention about 12 pm in the Convention Center.

I look forward to receiving your donations and working with your company’s items to achieve the greatest return of your company’s donation and investment. Your Company can even be a Charity event sponsor and a member of your company will be allowed to auction off your donation during the auction, be in the program book, display a company banner and be featured on the Charity event web page.

The award-winning Challenger Learning Center-St. Louis provides simulated space missions, science education and team building programs . The core experience at the center is a two-hour simulated space mission featuring an orbiting space station and a Mission Control center. All programs offered by the Challenger Learning Center provide meaningful and engaging science, technology, engineering, and math activities as well as a focus on team-building, cooperation, and critical and creative thinking skills. Programs are available for students, educators, corporations, scouts, community groups and the general public.
