AEDC Workers Go To School
Seventeen AEDC and Aerospace Testing Alliance (ATA) employees and four local teachers visited the Challenger/STEM Center at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga this month, where they took part in classroom activities that they can now share with students at local schools.
The Challenger Center is an informal science education facility that exists as a living memorial in honor of the Challenger crew and is designed to promote the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to students. There are 48 Challenger Learning Centers located around the world.
AEDC workers took part in more than a dozen classroom activities from the perspective of the student.
AEDC also received several teaching kits as part of the workshop. The kits contain the tools to teach the lessons they learned at the Challenger Center and will be available to lend out either to local teachers or to complex employees that want to take them to a school.
