Virtual Intrepid Adventure Programs

Join an Intrepid Museum educator each week as we explore history, science and ingenuity online together. Virtual Intrepid Adventure Programs are family-friendly and engage all ages. We request that adults participate in the program with their children. Programs run between 45 minutes and one hour. Advance registration for this drop-in online program is required to receive Zoom information and print-at-home materials when applicable.

Upcoming Programs:

Life Aboard! (Ages 5–15)

Tuesday, November 10, 3:00pm–4:00pm

With 3,200 sailors aboard Intrepid's, it’s no wonder it was called a "city at sea!" Living on a naval ship proved to be both challenging and exciting. Learn more about what it was like to live aboard Intrepid during this immersive experience! Students will articulate the purpose of an aircraft carrier and identify at least three crew member jobs held during Intrepid's time of service. They will be taught the many ways in which life aboard differed from life on land and some of the adjustments sailors made to improve life aboard.

High Flying Design (Ages 8–18)

Fundamental concepts such as the four forces of flight, Bernoulli's principle and aerodynamics will be discussed.
