Levitation, invisibility, moving objects with your mind… it’s all impossible, right? Maybe not! Join the Fleet's Curator of Impossible Science, Jason Latimer, as he hosts our fifth annual Impossible Science Festival! Experience virtual reality, witness light being bent and so much more. More than 20 interactive demonstrations will showcase how the seemingly impossible can become possible with science.
Get your tickets now! All of the festival fun is included in Fleet admission, along with the Fleet's regular interactive exhibits, plus an IMAX film of your choice.
Remember what it was like to spend a carefree afternoon on the playground? You were free to slide down the slide, play in the sand or even jump in the ball pit with no cell phones or email to distract you? The good news is the Fleet has created our own ode to childhood playgrounds with the exhibition Pause|Play. The bad news is it’s closing Monday, September 2! Join us now to speed down a 31-foot-long slide, get lost in a maze and take a dip in the ball pool. Better yet, if you’re 21 and up you can join us for Adult Recess on select Saturday evenings this month. Enjoy an adult beverage while reliving the playground days. It’s the best of both worlds!
Bring your family to the American Chemical Society Kids Zone, a Presidential Outreach Event at the Fleet Science Center. Kids and families will learn about the wonders of chemistry and water with hands-on activities, giveaways, free issues of the ACS kid’s publication and more. The American Chemical Society Kids Zone event is included with general admission to the Fleet.
Summertime is winding down and back-to-school will be upon us before we know it! If you’re looking for a way to infuse some fun into the end of summer while getting your young ones' minds accustomed to learning again, Fleet Summer Science Camps are the perfect solution. Check out camps like Movie Magic or ThoughtSTEM's Coding for Harry Potter Fans.
Sign up today for the final two weeks of summer camps!
