News from the Christa McAuliffe Space Center
James Porter, Director
Galileo and Magellan Concept Art
Thanks to some recent donations we are excited to share some concept art related to the new simulators being built. As we get closer to our goals we'll share more fun peeks into the new Space Center. We hit some goals so quickly we are working to catch up and share some ship models and other news so stay tuned.
Many personal donations have been matched by employers so ask your company if they offer donation/gift matching when you look to make your contribution.

Farewell To Four Members of our Space EdVenturing Family. Life is Calling...... It is time to Return to the Good Earth
As we transition into a new school year that often means that staff move on to new adventures with school, careers, or religious endeavors. This year we lose Erin, Connor, Lindsey, and Orion. Collectively between the four they have put in around 25 years as volunteers, supervisors, and flight directors. We wish them in all of their pursuits and look forward to when they visit us again.

Christa McAuliffe Space Center / Central Elementary School Construction Update
Thursday marked the first major wall of cement being poured in the Space Center section of the school. Today I remembered the photo as I work to organize this years field trips and see what we can do for the 23 schools on our wait list.
Part of those are the schools that will get spring field trips in the new building as long as everything finishes on time. So far we are on course with no major setbacks thanks to Hogan & Associates Construction and all their hard work to get us there.
