Intrepid Women

Tuesday, August 3, 3:00-4:00pm

Women have made a significant impact on the air & space industry, from the dawn of flight, through wartime efforts, and even as pioneers in the space industry. Hear the stories of some of these brave, unsung women who paved the way for gender equality in their fields, and discover the impact their work has had on the next generation of women in STEM! Register Here.

Star Stories

Thursday, August 5, 3:00-4:00pm

For millennia, people have gazed at the night sky and told 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, we’ll help you view the sky in a whole new way. Register Here.


Tuesday, August 10, 3:00-4:00pm

Investigate coded forms of Naval communication and stealth techniques by examining artifacts from Intrepid’s time in service. Then test out your decoding skills and learn to construct your own secret messages! Register Here.

Journey to Space

Thursday, August 12, 3:00-4:00pm

During the Space Race in the 1960s, Intrepid played an important role as a prime recovery vessel for NASA’s Mercury and Gemini missions! Learn about our connections to the space program and why astronauts need spacecraft and spacesuits when they venture into Earth’s orbit and beyond. Participants will also get a glimpse into the Space Shuttle Pavilion, home of the Space Shuttle Enterprise. Register Here.

Six Ships Named Intrepid

Tuesday, August 17, 3:00-4:00pm

You may only know about the USS Intrepid, home to the Intrepid Museum, but did you know that it was actually the 4th USS Intrepid in history? Join us to learn about all of the ships (and other vessels!) that shared the name "Intrepid" and the stories behind them. Register Here.

Snackin’ in Space!

Thursday, August 19, 3:00-4:00pm

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.

Flying in Style

Tuesday, August 24, 3:00-4:00pm

There’s more to aircraft than wings and engines. Get up close to the aircraft in our collection and learn how their symbols and paint schemes help us to identify their “team” and make each one unique! Register Here.
