Modified programs for children with social, emotional, physical, cognitive and sensory disabilities.
These 60- to 90-minute educator-led multi-sensory explorations of the Intrepid Museum are specifically modified to meet the academic or social-emotional goals for the visit. Program themes include, but are not limited to:
Life at Sea
Learn what it took to be one of the approximately 3,000 crew members living aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid. This program focuses on the living conditions and wide variety of jobs that were needed for a “city at sea.”
Aviation & Aircraft
Discover the four forces of flight and how an airplane flies in the sky. This program explores the Museum’s extensive aircraft collection and includes a hands-on exploration of a helicopter and/or airplane.
Uncover Intrepid’s role in the early space program and explore the space shuttle Enterprise and replica space capsules. Groups will visit the temporary exhibition HUBBLE@25 commemorating the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope.
Compare the different ways humans can travel on water, in the air and into space! This program examines the design and function of the ship, aircraft, and space vehicles.
