LIBRARY PROGRAMS

Community Engagement Programs

 
The Museum travels throughout New York City to provide exciting hands-on programs at Brooklyn Public Library, Queens Public Library and New York Public Library branch locations. Community engagement programs are designed for all ages and can be adjusted for the specific needs of each location.

Program Options

Poof! Life in a Vacuum
Where does “space” begin? How far away is the moon? Where did the space shuttles go? These questions and more are answered as you discover Intrepid’s role in the Space Race, the importance of Earth’s atmosphere and why astronauts need to wear spacesuits. Using a bell jar and vacuum pump, Museum educators will mimic the vacuum of space and its effect on objects.

Camouflage: Now You See it, Now You Don’t
Wait...is it a bird? Is it a plane? Yes, it's a plane! Learn how animals have influenced military camouflage by creating your own camouflaged ship and plane.

High-Flying Design
Find out how the four forces of flight, Newton’s Laws of Motion and other principles of flight allowed Intrepid’s aircraft to soar across the sky. Then make and balance your own gliders! You’ll manipulate their flaps and rudders to perform various maneuvers and bring them to a controlled landing.
