CHALLENGER: Soaring with Christa McAuliffe™

October 15 @ 12:15 pm1:30 pm
| Cost: $4 | Cost for Members: $2

Presentations will take place via the video conferencing app ZOOM. Please register in advance in order to access the program.

Who is America’s favorite teacher? Ask anyone about Christa McAuliffe and they will tell you exactly where they were when the Challenger shuttle launched; however, few people understand who Mrs. McAuliffe really was. America’s Teacher in Space was an educational pioneer and her goals and accomplishments are explored in this multi-media performance experience, which debuted in 2016 in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Challenger launch.

Journey through Christa’s life in this multi-media immersive program. CHALLENGER honors the crew of the NASA space shuttle. The performance has been approved by the McAuliffe and Corrigan Families and was originally made possible, in part, due to the generosity of the Bob Jolly Charitable Trust.

After the program, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and for more information, follow “History At Play” on Social Media. Photography is permitted, so long as no flash is used. No video recording is allowed.
