The Challenger Learning Center of Maine recently partnered with @ColeMuseum to hold a bottle rocket launch event, where kids made their own custom rockets before launching them into the sky! bit.ly/3OwZiaM #STEM #STEMeducation #STEAM #STEAMeducation #Space #Rockets
90 cents of every dollar donated to Challenger Center goes to our #STEM educational programs. So, no matter how you donate, your generosity is used to inspire young minds. #Donate today: challenger.org/donate/ #Donate #Fundraising #STEMeducation #STEAM #STEAMeducation
Lt. Col. Alexander Jefferson, a member of the #TuskegeeAirmen during WWII, passed away at the age of 100. A friend of Challenger Center, he shared his inspiring story with us during our annual meeting in 2012 #ThankYouForYourService #BlackPilots #Aviation #AviatorsOfColor
Earlier this month, #Apollo1 Astronauts Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Edward White, & Roger Chaffee were honored with a monument at @ArlingtonNatl. In case you missed it: youtu.be/lXxNO_NPP3w #Space #SpaceLovers #STEM #STEMeducation #STEAM #STEAMeducation @AIAspeaks @NASA @CBSMornings
Today, on his birthday, we remember #SpaceShuttleChallenger Mission Specialist, Ellison Onizuka. He served w/ the @usairforce until 1978 when he was selected as a @NASA astronaut. He was the 1st Asian American & 1st person of Japanese ancestry to reach #space
Congrats to Alan Hanstein, @challengertlh's new Mission Commander! He shared, "These kids that are here at the Center today are going to solve big problems. And it’s not just space. It’s other engineering problems..."bit.ly/3OkFiaD #STEM #STEAM #STEMeducation #Space
Today, the North Pole is at its maximum tilt toward the Sun, marking the longest day of the year & the astronomical start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere #STEM #STEMeducation #Space #Astronomy #SummerSolstice 📷: Sai Kiran Anagani@unsplashhI
🚨Teachers: Researchers are ready to explore Mars, but 40 million+ miles separate Earth & the Red Planet—it's impossible to travel back & forth. Can your students help us select which of Mars' moons is best to build a research base?bit.ly/37GWpDw5#STEMM#STEMeducationnn
In celebration of #Juneteenth, a new @NASA documentary, The Color of Space, captures the stories of 7 former & current Black astronauts, including our Immediate Past Chair, Robert Curbeam. Watch on @NASA's platforms starting at noon bit.ly/3xAfsbZ #BlackHistory #Space
This #PrideMonth, we’re celebrating just a few LGBTQ+ #STEM trailblazers who have benefited mankind: Sally Ride (1st American Woman in Space), Alan Turing (Father of Theoretical Computer Science & AI) & Lynn Conway (Pioneer of Supercomputer Tech & Microelectronic Chip Design)
Our very own Board Member & Astronaut @AstroDot participated in @HigherOrbits' "Go For Launch!” #STEAM event in Midland, TX. Check out nationwide events that Higher Orbits (a fellow grantee from @blueorigin's @clubforfuture) has planned this summer: bit.ly/3y0n8FZ #Space

Thanks to a gift from @AerojetRdyne, we brought our Virtual Mission programs to 800+ students in the Huntsville, AL metro area—taking students from @madisonschools on journeys to Mars & the Moon! Read more: bit.ly/3QjYLdn #STEM #STEMeducation #Space #PowerTheFuture
Check out some behind the scenes of Camp Challenger at @challengertlh, where campers will learn to code, brainstorm creative solutions to everyday problems, produce podcasts, use their imaginations to write short stories & explore the design process. #STEM #STEAM #SummerCamp2022 twitter.com/challengertlh/…
High & low tides are actually caused by the moon’s gravitational pull, generating tidal force that causes Earth & its water to bulge out on the sides closest/farthest from the moon, creating high tides. More from @NOAA bit.ly/393YACh #WorldOceansDay #STEM #STEMeducation
"The Apollo 1 crew is a really important story, and that can be told there at Arlington [National Cemetery]." Lance Bush, President & CEO, @ChallengerCtr twitter.com/CBSMornings/st…
