If you think invisibility and levitation is the stuff of the impossible, do we have news for you! Jason Latimer, the Fleet's Curator of Impossible Science, is returning for the fourth annual Impossible Science Festival on August 11 & 12. Experience virtual reality, witness light being bent and so much more! Don't miss the Impossible Science LIVE show at 4:30 and 5:30 each day--that's only four chances to see the World Champion of Magic and TV star on stage in this mind-blowing experience. Get your tickets now and be there to experience the impossible!
Do you reject the conventional? Do fluorescent lighting and indoor spaces make you crave to break free? Then you're the kind of person who should join the Renegade Science Project. Developed by the Fleet Science Center in conjunction with Museum Hack, this new outdoor experience is a fast-paced, 90-minute, interactive exploration of all the science Balboa Park has to offer. Don't forget your phone (like that's even possible!), because your Insta-worthy snaps will give your friends some serious FOMO.
Kids, are you counting down the days until school so you can get a break from your parents?! Tell your folks to take the night off so you can join us at the Fleet for Kids' Night Out. You can check out all the awesome activities the Fleet has to offer, like MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, plus special one-night only offerings like scavenger hunts and hands-on activities.
neil degrasse tyson: an astrophysicist goes to the movies
Star Wars could totally happen, right? And Elsa's powers in Frozen? Completely plausible! OK, maybe not, but there are some things that the movies get right, and who better to enlighten us on the science of our favorite movies than Neil deGrasse Tyson himself?! The legendary astrophysicist will be at the San Diego Civic Theatre for one night only, so don't miss your chance to sort out fact from (science) fiction.
52 Weeks of Science crew for a movie under the stars! On the big screen is everyone's favorite Reese's Pieces-loving and bicycle-basket riding alien, E.T.! Bring your lawn chairs and your blankets and participate in fun activities before the movie starts at sundown. Refreshments are available for purchase ... but keep an eye on those Reese's Pieces.
