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.

Upcoming Programs:

Snackin’ in Space! | (Ages 8–18)

Thursday, May 6, 3:00pm–4:00pm   

What do astronauts eat in space and what’s the deal with astronaut ice cream? From meat cubes to dehydrated shrimp cocktail, explore the evolution of space cuisine! Register Here.

High Flying Design | (Ages 8–18)

Tuesday, May 11, 3:00pm–4:00pm   

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

Journey to Space | (Ages 8–18)

Thursday, May 13, 3:00pm–4:00pm   

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 III missions that occurred during the Space Race, including Intrepid's role as the primary recovery vessel for both NASA 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. Register Here.

Star Stories | (Ages 5–15)

Tuesday, May 18, 3:00pm–4:00pm   

For millennia, people have gazed at the night sky and told themselves stories about the pictures they see there. These same stars and constellations also allowed sailors to find their way back to port. Using images of the night sky, stories from different cultures and examples of simple navigation tools, an Intrepid Educator will help participants view their sky in a whole new way.
Star Stories Activity Materials: Blank piece of paper, coloring tools such as crayons or colored pencils.Register Here.

Flying in Style | (Ages 5–15)

Thursday, May 20, 3:00pm–4:00pm   

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, create a family squadron insignia or create a paper airplane and decorate it! Register Here.

Jobs on Deck | (Ages 5–15)

Tuesday, May 25, 3:00pm–4:00pm   

With 3,200 sailors aboard Intrepid, 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 Intrepid differed from life on land, and some of the adjustments sailors made to improve life aboard. Register Here.

Biome Away from Home | (Ages 8–18)

Thursday, May 27, 3:00pm–4:00pm   

Being in the “Goldilocks Zone”, the Earth was JUST right to have life. But what about other planets in our Solar System? Other Moons? Exoplanets? During this planetary adventure, explore the unknown and investigate potential places we can find life in Space! Register Here.
