The fun has been sky high so far at the Intrepid Museum’s Kids Week 2015, and it continues through Saturday! With a focus on flight and aviation, kids of all ages have learned how airplanes fly from Science Bob, watched owls and hawks swoop around the hangar deck with Talons! A Bird of Prey Experience, and spaced out with Space Racers!

 
 

Science Bob took the stage on Monday, and Talons! A Bird of Prey Experience flew in for a few days, giving several presentations that taught kids about birds and how they fly. Families and visitors were able to see Big Mama the Owl and other birds up close in between shows.

 
 

But Science Bob and amazing birds aren’t the only special guests this year! Curious George is here on Thursday for a meet-and-greet session, and there are screenings of Curious George Goes to Mars throughout the rest of the week. The Allison & Howard Lutnick Theater is showing Space Racers all week as well. Plus, pilot Amelia Rose Earhart is giving presentations about flight on Thursday and Friday.

 
 

Several authors are visiting Kids Week this year, to read from their flight-themed books. Aaron Meshon, author of Tools Rule!, and Steve Light, author of Zephyr Takes Flight, have already stopped by. Gilbert Ford, author of Flying Lessons, and Brian Floca, author of Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11, are here on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

 
 

Many of the Kids Week programs and activities focus on science. Several scientists stopped by to inspire kids and adults alike. Jill McGuire, a NASA tool engineer, spoke about space tools. Steven Mohammed, Marcos Santander and Ellen Crapster-Pregont also visited, and we’re looking forward to Or Graur, Andreas Küpper, Daniel D'Orazio and Shy Genel joining us for the rest of the week. Also in store are workshops, activities and demonstrations from Mad Science, Liberty Science Center, i2 Camp, NY Sun Works, the Society of Women Engineers and Dazzling Discoveries!

Click here to see the full schedule. We hope you’re able to join us for the rest of Kids Week 2015!
