Come jon the Fleet as we kick off the holiday season with Balboa Park's biggest event,
December Nights. Watch live science shows, make your own Borax snowflake and enjoy our hands-on exhibits. Adults can escape the crowds and indulge in beer and wine, plus food from
Craveology, in our first-ever 21+ lounge, The Black Hole.
Come to the North Star Science Store to find a selection of unique science-themed gifts for the holidays--and you won't have to wait for them to be shipped to you! Check out our collection of learning games, science projects, clever T-shirts and more. Or you can give a gift membership to the Fleet. What could be better than 365 days of science fun? Gift memberships can be purchased online, in person at the Fleet or over the phone by calling (619) 238-1233 x712.
... has GOT to be at one of these amazing upcoming events. First, enjoy a night out with friends to discuss how the digital world can shape our relationships and transform the nature of love in Suds & Science on December 3. Next, ponder the problems with the Nobel Prize in a panel discussion with opinionated scientists. Then, chat about everything from astronomy to zoology over a beer when Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar® on December 13. Finally, explore the mathematics in M.C. Escher's work with virtual reality and a talk by Sir Roger Penrose from Oxford University.
Educators are invited to the Fleet's
Volcanoes workshops. Catch a special screening of
the film, followed by a workshop that models activities and labs for the classroom. Educators for grades K-5 will learn how the destructive forces of volcanoes are essential for life. Educators for grades 6-8 will discover how tectonic plates shaped our San Diego communities. Additional December
educator workshops address scientific observation skills, stomp rockets and the ever-popular egg drop activity.
Keep the young minds in your life occupied by enrolling them in Fleet Winter Camps. Kids in grades 1-3 can explore explosive Earth events, make roller coasters and create color-changing potions. Older kids in grades 4-8 can learn to code and program while designing their own armor, power-ups and more in a Fortnite-style game.
