Intrepid Adventures

 
Intrepid Adventures are enrichment programs designed to provide children ages 5–12, their siblings and parents/caregivers an opportunity to have fun and learn together. Each Adventure is inspired by a Museum exhibition. Programs are one hour and free with Museum admission. Meet at the Information Desk on the hangar deck.

Please indicate your desired date. Space is limited. Register in advance.

March 2 & 3 Flying in Style
There’s more to aircraft than wings and engines. Get up close to the aircraft in our collection to learn how symbols and paint schemes set each airplane apart. Then head back to the classroom to create a family squadron insignia and decorate an airplane. SIGN UP
March 16 & 17 Intrepid Space Academy
Learn about Intrepid’s role in the Space Race and then find out if you have “the right stuff” as you go through our astronaut training course. You will learn about the disorientation astronauts may feel when they first get to space, the effects of a vacuum on humans, and how to live and work in one of the harshest environments around. SIGN UP
 
April 6 & 7 Jobs on Deck
Planes don’t put themselves in the air, especially on a ship like Intrepid. For naval aviators to take flight from an aircraft carrier, they need a whole team of people and the power of a steam catapult. Take on the roles of the flight deck crew in this interactive tour that follows aircraft from the hangar deck to the air and back again. SIGN UP
April 27 & 28 Diving Into Density
How does Intrepid float? How did Growler dive? Take a tour of our massive aircraft carrier and explore our interactive submarine exhibit, Submerged. Then dive and surface with a Cartesian diver you can make at home and design an aluminum foil boat in our workshop. Will your boat hold the most cargo? SIGN UP
 
May 11 & 12 Intrepid Space Academy

Make the best paper airplanes around while learning about the four forces of flight and how they apply to the planes that flew from Intrepid. Then learn how to steer planes through the air in our obstacle course. SIGN UP
 
July 6 & 7 Star Stories
