The Challenge: NASA's Challenger 7 Teaching Fellows
In the late 1980's The Challenger Center for Space Science Education and McGraw Hill awarded 7 teachers from around the United States as innovators, improving American Education, following the mission of Christa McAuliffe and her fellow astronauts. T.H. Culhane, then teaching at Crenshaw High School in "The 'Hood" (1989-1991), was one of the recipients of the award. When he became a mentor teacher for Teach For America he and his students and mentees created this video to celebrate the Challenger Center program. The video was produced by and features teachers T.H. Culhane, Dr. Sherry Kerr and students Robert Jones and Kofi Narty, along with teacher trainees in the "Teach for America" program at USC, where T.H. and Dr. Kerr were mentor instructors.
