ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
SAC broke ground on the Scobee Planetarium/Challenger (now named the Scobee Education Center) in May of 2012. During this 2+ years of extensive remodeling and new construction, the existing building, which included the Planetarium and Observatory, underwent major renovation. New construction added the Challenger Learning Center which has increased the building size to a total of 22,000 square feet.

The Scobee Planetarium, named for Francis “Dick” Scobee, flight commander of the ill-fated Challenger mission, has been a San Antonio College staple for more than 50 years. It has ushered in millions of visitors over the years, and will continue to serve the community with invigorating shows and events.

With the addition of the Challenger component, the Scobee Education Center will become the hub of all space and science education for not only the city of San Antonio, but for the South Texas region. The Challenger component will provide the community, school-aged children and educators a unique resource for hands-on learning about space, science and more. The Center will also provide professional development opportunities and rental space for special events.
