DISTANCE LEARNING

DISTANCE LEARNING

 
Can’t get to the Museum? Schedule a virtual field trip for your school or community group.

Our distance learning programs take the video conference out of the office and into the Museum to provide an authentic experience of our exhibits and artifacts, no matter where you live.

Current Programs


Aviation Science (Grades 3–12)
Students will discuss the parts of a plane and how nature influences shape and design. Educators will demonstrate the four forces of flight, and students will experiment with these concepts before creating their own simple flying machines. Classes will also explore the aircraft carrier Intrepid and examine the machinery that makes flight at sea possible.

Space Science (Grades K–12)
Students will get a tour of the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home of the space shuttle Enterprise. An educator will discuss the Mercury-Atlas 7 and Gemini 3 missions during the Space Race, including Intrepid’s role as the primary recovery vessel for both missions. Students will learn about the vacuum of space and why astronauts need spacecraft and spacesuits when they venture into Earth’s orbit and beyond.
