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!

Registration is required for all homeschool programs. Some activities have limited space.

    Astronauts Aboard!
    January 12, 10:00am–2:00pm

    In the early days of space exploration, American astronauts were launched into space by rockets and then landed in the ocean, where they were retrieved by U.S. Navy ships. Astronauts Scott Carpenter, Gus Grissom and John Young walked the decks of Intrepid after their space missions over 50 years ago. Learn more about space exploration by viewing the space shuttle orbiter Enterprise and the Museum’s artifacts. Explore the historical spaces of the ship, see exhibits with a Museum educator, and enjoy hands-on STEM activities all about an astronaut’s journey into space. Space-themed apparel welcome!

    Homeschool Day admission is $10.50 for non-members and $6 for Museum members. Space is limited.

    Registration opens on December 11, 2017.
