Fly Into Space with the Challenger Space Center
"Fly Into Space with the Challenger Space Center" is an entry about the design, planning, features, and purpose of a Challenger Space Center being built in Kenai, Alaska (starting in summer of 1999). This will be the first Challenger Learning Center in the state of Alaska, and will surely attract students from across the state. Our web entry briefly addresses basic "who, what, where, when, why, and how" questions, as well as listing some of the recent contributors and the history behind the Challenger Centers. We think that our web site's format is a good way to make our site easily understandable and straightforward to visitors! Although the center's main focus is space education, our web site also looks at some of the steps involved with designing and constructing an educational center such as this. Our web entry, therefore, looks at both the purpose of the new Challenger Space Center, as well as the process involved with getting the center constructed and operating. Our entry will provide students across the country a look at the process involved in establishing a Challenger Space center in a new state. The site will enable students in schools across the state of Alaska to learn about the design, process, and features of the newest Challenger Space Center (before they make their first trip to visit it!). The project coordinator hopes to link this "student" site to his already existing Challenger web site! After visiting this site, students will say, "Now I know more about what a Challenger Space Center is, and what's involved in making one!"
