Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing s with a sensory friendly evening for teens and adults with autism. The Space Shuttle Pavilion will be open late for exploration.

Children in grades 3–6 will explore the challenge of maintaining physical health in a microgravity environment and discuss astronauts’ nutrition and preparatory physical training. They will also learn how the design and protective technology of space suits made it possible for humans to walk safely on the moon.

Students in grades 7–12 will delve deeper into the history of the Space Race and the competition between the United States and the former Soviet Union. Students will imagine the challenge of creating technology that operates in the vacuum of space and discuss the engineering behind the space shuttle Enterprise and its robotic arm. Students will also construct their own “robotic arms” to capture and move objects.

Uncover Intrepid’s role in the U.S. space program with our All Hands program for groups of individuals with disabilities. View the space shuttle Enterprise and explore replica space capsules. This program may include a planetarium show.
