Kids Week at the Intrepid 2022
Kids Week is back at the Intrepid Museum and the fun is moving full STEAM ahead! Science, technology, engineering, arts, math, and fun take center stage at this annual Midwinter Break fest.
This year, Kids Week features three days of programming from NASA, including full-scale models of the Mars Perseverance rover and Ingenuity helicopter. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is on hand with Mars scientists and engineers offering demonstrations and exhibitions. NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center highlights their latest moon habitat concepts, technology and planetary mission plans and Goddard Space Flight Center shows how their communication and navigation services are essential for NASA’s space flight.
Kids can also meet Astronaut Victor J. Glover, Jr. and hear about his experiences in space! Additional programming throughout Kids Week includes a chance for kids to make their own Mission Patch or Mars Rover, learn how to engineer and safely land a space vehicle, participate in a paper airplane challenge, get up-close to some of the animal kingdom’s coolest creatures, and create their own video game.
