    • Christa Corrigan McAuliffe Challenger Center Framingham State University
      The primary purpose of the Christa McAuliffe Center is to support teachers in their work. We do this by offering exciting science and math programs  designed for both students and teachers, all closely based on the Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Curriculum Frameworks.
      Some of these programs are created onsite to fulfill educational needs specific to Massachusetts educators. Others are part of networks that impact hundreds of thousands of students and teachers across the US, Canada, and the UK.
      The Christa McAuliffe Center was established on the campus of Framingham State University to continue the educational mission which was the life work of FSU's most notable graduate, Sharon Christa Corrigan McAuliffe.

    • Christa Corrigan McAuliffe Archival Collection at Framingham State University
      The materials in the Christa Corrigan McAuliffe Collection document the extensive coverage of the Teacher in Space program established by NASA, as well as materials relating to the educational mission inspired by Christa Corrigan McAuliffe. The collection includes a sampling of Christa’s personal papers and memorabilia. The majority of the McAuliffe Collection includes media coverage of the Challenger mission, tributes and memorials to Christa and Challenger, and schools and scholarships established in her name. The bulk of the collection dates from 1986 to the present.
      The Christa Corrigan McAuliffe Collection was donated to the Henry Whittemore Library at Framingham State University in January 2000 by Grace Corrigan, Christa’s mother.
