2017 Kids Week at The IntrepidJanuary 24, 2017 - by City Guide News Desk
Attention, aspiring naval officers and scientists! The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will host its annual Kids Week from Monday, February 20 through Saturday, February 25. Kids on winter break will have the opportunity to participate in dozens of fun-filled activities and hands-on workshops, while also enjoying live shows and special guest appearances.
This year, Kids Week has game! Following that theme, kids can play cutting-edge digital games, design their own games, and get into interactive displays. As they tinker and play, they'll learn about the logic (and the imagination) that go into game design.
Among the special guests will be Jarod Miller, a zoologist and naturalist who has been featured on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien, along with his amazing animals; Allison Bolinger, NASA spacewalk flight controller and lead trainer at Johnson Space Center; engineer and former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino; scientists, childrens' books authors, and many more.
In addition, Intrepid Museum educators will lead live demonstrations, planetarium presentations, sketch theater performances, and Tour Guides will lead themed Tour Guide Talks throughout each day.
All Kids Week activities are free with museum admission. Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, Pier 86, W. 46th St. and 12th Ave., NY, 212-245-0072; intrepidmuseum.org
