Wamp Presents Challenger Center Grant

UTC faculty and staff attended a reception held recently at the Challenger Center, when Congressman Zach Wamp came to announce the awarding of a $921,000 grant to UTC for the Center.

"(The Challenger Center) gives us an opportunity to train teachers and college students and educate children," Wamp said.

A planetarium and additional classrooms will be added with the funding. It is the another step toward the completion of the Challenger Center.

The UTC Challenger Center is one of 43 similar sites dedicated to the memory of the Challenger mission and the Challenger's commander, Dick Scobee.
