Eyes on the Stars


Teaching for Change was a proud partner with StoryCorps on its Teacher Initiative last year. We recruited the participants for their DC area educator interviews. As part of our ongoing partnership with StoryCorps, we are pleased to participate in the launch of their latest animation called “Eyes on the Stars.”

As StoryCorps explains: “On January 28, 1986, NASA Challenger mission STS-51-L ended in tragedy when the shuttle exploded 73 seconds after takeoff.  On board was physicist Ronald E. McNair, who was the second African American to enter space. But first, he was a kid with big dreams in Lake City, South Carolina.”

This animated short was produced by StoryCorps.
