For Immediate Release
February 12, 2016
Specialty Cable Corporation (SCC) is proud to announce the contributing sponsorship of Bridgeport, Connecticut Discovery Museum & Planetarium’s Challenger Learning Center.
SCC is committed to making a difference in the communities we live and work in. Through sponsorship of the Challenger Learning Center, we are able to partner with other corporate sponsors to further develop and prepare our youth for the future.
Challenger Center for Space Science Education was founded in 1986 by the families of the astronauts who died in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster on January 28, 1986.
The organization offers dynamic, hands-on exploration and discovery opportunities to students around the world. These programs equip students with the knowledge, confidence, and skills that will help better our national, social, and economic well-being.
The Challenger Learning Center is a living testimony to the dream of the Challenger crew, and what would have been NASA’s first education-focused mission. When the crew of the Challenger space shuttle flight 51-L perished in 1986, they were on a pioneering mission to extend the boundaries of human knowledge.
Challenger Learning Centers give students the chance to become astronauts and engineers and solve real-world problems as they share the thrill of discovery on missions through the Solar System. Using space simulation and role-playing strategies, students bring their classroom studies to life and cultivate the skills needed for future success.
We encourage you to visit the Challenger Learning Center at Discovery Museum and Planetarium. For more information about the Challenger Learning Center and more, please visit the Discovery Museum online here.
