The theme of this year’s party celebrates “the final frontier” and innovations in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Highlights include presentations and autograph signings by NASA astronauts, a free screening of the movie Gravity and plenty of hands-on demonstrations and activities from NASA and science partners.

Now docked at Pier 86, the Intrepid’s mission is to honor heroes and educate visitors of all ages with hands-on history displays and exhibitions — which include an impressive array of high-tech aircraft and vessels.
