Website for author, speaker and educator Dr. June Scobee Rodgers debuts

Dr. June Scobee Rodgers announced today a new informative and interactive website to support her ongoing advocacy efforts in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education – The website features a calendar of Scobee Rodgers speaking engagements and book signings, offers frequent updates and motivational messages to teachers and students, and provides a downloadable form with booking information.

“I am very excited to launch this website,” said Scobee Rodgers. “It covers it all – not only can viewers order my books or locate where I will be speaking, but it highlights one of my greatest passions, the Challenger Center for Space Science Education. With proceeds from book sales and speaking engagements directly supporting Challenger Center, my hope is that this website will further advance our mission and the immediate importance of STEM education in America.”

The website announcement was made in Alexandria, VA, where Scobee Rodgers is participating in the annual conference of the Challenger Learning Center network and for a special 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Challenger Center for Space Science Education. Scobee Rodgers serves as Founding Chairman for the organization, which was established in honor of the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger accident, which claimed the life of her husband, Commander Dick Scobee, and his six crewmates including teacher Christa McAuliffe.

Scobee Rodgers is author of Silver Linings: My Life Before and After Challenger 7, Founding Chairman for the Challenger Center, a nationally recognized advocate for the advancement of math and science education, an inspirational and high demand speaker, and a recipient of the National Award for Excellence in Leadership.
