Scobee Education Center Student visit areas
<div>The Scobee Education Center at San Antonio College is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults alike by fostering a love for science, technology, and astronomy through hands on experiences and programs at the Challenger Learning Center and Scobee Planetarium. The Center was established on the campus of San Antonio College in memory of the lives given by the seven crew members of the Space Shuttle Challenger/STS-51L "Teacher in Space" mission. Our goal is to carry on the crew's educational mission, to spark youth interest and joy in science and engineering. The Center is named after the Francis R. (Dick) Scobee family - Commander Scobee, his widow Dr. June Scobee Rodgers, and their children Kathie Scobee Fulgham and Maj. Gen. Richard W. Scobee.</div>
<div>The Scobee Planetarium has been located at San Antonio College since 1961 and has undergone a series of renovations to install a new Digistar 5 projection system with higher resolution and dynamic, brighter colors. Never before have planetarium presentations come alive as do they do now with computer generated animations and striking imagery from across the cosmos. We offer a variety of presentations suitable for grades pre-K through 12th. Studying astronomy and space science in the planetarium dome takes learning into a new dimension. Up to 101 adventurers may rocket through the solar system with animated tour guides, sail through the constellations of the night sky or take a precarious journey into a black hole. There are 21 programs to choose from with new children’s programs being added in the fall of 2016. There is no food allowed in the planetarium and all mobile devices should be on silent or off mode. </div>
<div>The Challenger Learning Center is a unique interactive simulator where 32 participants become immersed in the roles of astronauts, scientists, and engineers in mission control or aboard a spacecraft traveling to the International Space Station or Moon Base Alpha. Communication and teamwork skills are reinforced through out the mission as the crew is immersed in a hands-on next generation simulator unlike any other across the global Challenger community. </div><div><br></div>
<div>Our Observatory sits on top of the Charlie Cheever Star tower. Inside is the primary telescopic instrument for Scobee Education Center, a 10-inch diameter refractor. The telescope is capable of tracking a variety of celestial objects across the sky. </div>

<div>As you enter the Scobee Education center for a challenger mission and planetarium, please have your two groups of students already separated in the 1st challenger center mission group and the 1st planetarium group. As the students walk into the center have the challenger crew sit on the concert bench along the planetarium round dome. The planetarium students will assemble in the South Gallery where you find The Southwest Research displays. Teachers please don't forget your crew manifest for the challenger mission. That will be the first things the flight director for your mission will ask for. </div>
<div>If your are bringing two groups to the Scobee Education Center the planetarium group will gather in the Ewing-Hassel Gallery. Near the Southwest Research Center exhibit. </div>
