Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing the events at Kids Week aboard the Intrepid. The theme for the day was "Science Meets Science Fiction." The featured guest was NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott, whom my husband Eric, Curator of Aviation, had the pleasure of escorting. Here are some photos from the day:
Intrepid Educator Tom Barry has three boys totally engrossed in his experiment on stage.
NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott, accompanied by an ASL interpreter, entertained the audience with her incredible stories of spending 91 days on the International Space Station, and then walking in space.
More Star Wars characters. They roamed around the crowd, taking photos with families and kids.
"Mad Science" was very popular!
Kids absorbed in watching how a laser beam cut through the opaque shapes.
A mechanical robot piloted by his brother drops a bottle of water into his arms.
Astronaut Stott is greeted by a family in the Space Shuttle Pavilion.
