With 3,200 sailors aboard Intrepid, it’s no wonder it was called a “city at sea!” Living on a naval ship proved to be both challenging and exciting. Learn more about what it was like to live aboard Intrepid during this immersive experience! Viewers will articulate the purpose of an aircraft carrier and identify at least three crew member jobs held during Intrepid's time of service. They will be taught the many ways in which life aboard Intrepid differed from life on land, and some of the adjustments sailors made to improve life aboard.
