The Cold War through the Collections of the Intrepid Museum

A two-week institute for 25 K-12 educators on the history and technology of the Cold War era.

The Intrepid Museum Foundation is respectfully requesting a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support a two-week Institute for educators, examining the history, experience and legacy of Cold War technology through the use of two historic sites—the former U.S. aircraft carrier Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark, and the former U.S. submarine, Growler, a unique artifact that represents the technology and tensions of the Cold War.   The Institute will immerse teachers in scholarly historical research as well as the history, artifacts and oral histories in the Museum’s collection that embody the Cold War era. Integrating content exploring the historical context of technological innovation, the Institute will serve a national group of 25 high school history and science teachers in order to deepen their understanding and increase confidence in their ability to explore the subject thoroughly, critically and engagingly with their students.
