No services planned for 28th anniversary of loss of Challenger crew
But in many schoolrooms, teachers will take the opportunity to talk about the Challenger mission and New Hampshire’s crew member who often said: “I touch the future. I teach.” She took such delight in gaining the opportunity to teach from space and encouraged her students, saying: “May your future be limited only by your dream.”
Elsewhere in the country, the foundation started in April 1986 by the family members of the lost Challenger crew continues to open Challenger Centers for Space Science Education.
The center is not a museum and is not open to the public. It provides teacher professional development and learning opportunities to middle school students. The McAuliffe Center’s Challenger Mission Simulation and Planetarium programs are designed to work in a formal education setting under the direction of a middle school classroom teacher.
