Who is America's favorite teacher? Ask anyone about Christa McAuliffe and they will tell you exactly where they were when the Challenger shuttle launched; however, few people understand who Mrs. McAuliffe really was. America's Teacher in Space was an educational pioneer and her goals and accomplishments are explored in this multi-media performance experience, which debuted in 2016 in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Challenger launch.

History At Play™ Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora travelled to Mrs. McAuliffe's hometown of Framingham, MA and to Concord, NH to discover the true story behind the incredible teacher and American Pioneer. Now, she shares Christa's spirit with you.

Suitable for all ages. Running time: Approx. 80 minutes.
