We're going to let you in on a little secret. If you've been enjoying our latest exhibition,
Pause|Play, or if you've been curious about it but haven't yet been able to come explore it yourself, you're in luck. Pause|Play, the Fleet's adult-sized playground, has been extended! This means you have more time to clock your speed going down a 31-foot slide, test your ability to solve a maze or see the true effects of centripetal force on a merry-go-round. Plus,
Adult Recess will continue in September! Put your busy life on pause and come play at the Fleet.
How does our brain remember things? What’s the closest star outside our solar system? What are all the technologies needed to get this email from our computers here at the Fleet to your phone or computer? All these questions and more can be answered by asking scientists.
Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar sends 50 scientists out to 25 different bars all over San Diego County to answer your science-related questions. Grab a drink and ask away. Check out our
website for the updated list of bars and science specialties.
Cornering Cancerbrings a doctor, researcher and patient advocate together to talk about the latest developments in cancer research. Done in partnership with the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, this month the topic is Beyond Chemotherapy—How Treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukemia Has Finally Evolved. We'll talk about how understanding the disease and treatment from the molecular level has led to more complete treatments than ever before.
It’s back-to-school time! Did you know that the Fleet has a
whole catalog of science workshops and events that we can bring directly to your school? We have all the tools and lessons to engage students in hands-on science, as a complement to classroom studies or just a cool science event. Programs include Science To Go, which brings a hands-on lesson to your classroom or library, or one of our “explosive” live science shows! (We literally make things explode.)
We’re currently offering a special on booking for September. Call (619) 238-1233 x806 to find out more.
On the third Saturday of each month students in grades 1 to 4 are invited to investigate exciting science topics.
Junior Science Club sessions are filled with new challenges, hands-on activities and interaction with local scientists. This month's topic is Super Gross. Get ready for icky, sticky and just plain WEIRD science!
