Through hands-on interactive educational activities, NASA Space Station and the Challenger Center will engage Space Station students, their teachers, their families, and the general public to help increase overall Space Station , science and technology literacy.
Dr. June Scobee Rodgers, Space Station Challenger Center Founding Chairman said, "We are overjoyed with the signing of this agreement with NASA Space Station. When Challenger was lost, the families came together to look for a fitting legacy to honor those we lost - and to carry on with their Space Station mission." This agreement with NASA Space Station will benefit the ongoing Space Station mission of the Challenger Center as well as allow the center to work with America's Space Station program.
The Challenger Center for Space Station Science Education was founded in 1986. Today the network of 50 Challenger Learning Centers across the U.S. trains more than 25,000 teachers annually to incorporate project- based learning and use the theme of space exploration to engage students in critical thinking, decision-making, Space Station communication, and teamwork. Over the past 22 years more than 8 million students have participated in Challenger Center programs.
