school programs

 

The Intrepid Museum Youth Summit is a FREE virtual conference that invites students to hear from experts in the fields of STEM and social advocacy as well as highly motivated teens who have created projects or solutions that address issues in our society. During the Youth Summit, participants have the opportunity to share with and inspire each other to think differently and take positive action within their community.

The Intrepid Museum's Youth Summit Aspires to:

  • Provide an environment that promotes conversation, development and engagement for New York City youth to address the issues that matter to them.
  • Increase local teen and youth engagement and accessibility to the Intrepid Museum.
  • Engage New York City cultural institutions, academia and industry leaders in conversation and support for NYC youth.

  • FAQS

    Q Is the Youth Summit Free?
    A Yes, register on line and we will send you a link to the conference just a few days in advance.
     
    Q What kind of technical equipment will I need to join the Summit?
    A We understand that not everyone has access to the same type of technology, but in order to see some of the presentations it might be better to be on a bigger screen like a laptop/desktop or a Chromebook/iPad. We are also looking into ways that students without a smartphone will participate. Make sure that you are in a place in your home that you will have a strong signal or access to strong wifi.
     
    Q What should I wear?
    A We know this is a virtual conference, but if you dress like you are going to a conference, it may help you become more focused and "present" for the sessions you are joining. Wear comfortable clothing that looks professional (“business casual”). Examples of business casual include attire you would wear to a job or college interview. Pants, skirts or jeans with no rips, tears or embellishments and a shirt or top that covers your torso are appropriate choices. Wear comfortable shoes or sneakers that look nice.
    Not Acceptable: revealing clothing and clothing adorned with foul language or images.
     
    Q What should I do to prepare for the Summit?
    A We suggest having a pen or pencil and a notebook with you in case you want to take any notes, or jot down questions you may have for the presenters. Find a spot in your home that you will be comfortable and relatively undisturbed while you are joined to the Summit.
     
    Q What if I sign up and then realize I can’t join the Summit?
    A If you plan to join the Summit and later realize you are unable to, please email us at youthleadership@wots3.com
