What better way is there to spend your day than by coming to the Intrepid Museum to learn about history and science? Scout programs and activities are designed to help children earn requirements towards their Badges, Interest Projects, Loops or Try-Its.
 
History
On Scout Days children can participate in fun activities with museum educators and volunteers. Generally, children can participate in make-it and take-it activities and will be able to hear from speakers to learn about such topics as aviation, water conservation, civic duty or engineering. Activities take place between 11:00am and 2:30pm.
 
Join us for our Scout Days on:
  • November 8, 2014: HUBBLE@25
    Blast off with the Intrepid Museum as we celebrate all things space. This special day coincides with the opening of our newest exhibit, HUBBLE@25. Scouts will learn how the Hubble Space Telescope works and participate in activities centered around Hubble, as well as the USS Intrepid’s role in the race to the Moon during the Cold War. Scouts will also have a chance to meet and interview veterans from the Cold War era and learn what it was like to live and serve during one of the most exciting and tense times in American History.

  • March 14, 2015: STEM Day
    This day will coincide with our GOALS for Girls in Science and Engineering Day. Learn about cutting-edge science and technology from the people who are inventing and making it happen.

  • April 11, 2015: Aerospace
    How do airplanes fly? How do rockets fly? What’s the difference? Scouts will participate in hands-on activities to help them understand how planes and rockets manage to stay up in the sky when gravity is constantly trying to pull them down to Earth.

  • May 16, 2015: Scouts Take Over
    Has your troop been hard at work on a project? Want to show off your scouting skills? Come down to the Intrepid Museum on May 16 for our Scouts Take Over Day. Scouts will have the chance to demonstrate their projects to the public as well as other scout groups. Intrepid Museum Educators will also be on hand, providing activities and opportunities for scouts to work toward new merit badges.
