Designed with the homeschooling community in mind, Homeschool Days feature talks and programs focused on the National Historic Landmark Intrepid and the Museum’s aircraft. Appropriate for a range of ages and abilities, activities include an educator-led tour of the Museum and a chance to explore various topics through historic artifacts, photographs and demonstrations. Students and their families also get time to explore the Museum on their own and go on a self-guided scavenger hunt!

Upcoming Homeschool Days:

Engineering is Everywhere!
