Join the Classics Philharmonic Orchestra and the Hutchins Consort in a concert all about patterns. With music from a variety of genres students learn about patterns in beat, rhythm, and form and see how patterns play a role in many other subjects like mathematics, language arts, and science! Women’s History Month bonus: learn about historic American Carleen Hutchins, the string instrument maker who created the Hutchins Consort viols.
Explore interactive demonstrations and hands-on science activities at Super STEM Saturday, including rocket launches, build-a-robot stations, model displays, scientist chats and a obstacle course. The event is free and open to the public. Complimentary parking available in Lots E, F, and H. Super STEM Saturday is designed to expose and engage kids of all ages and their families to the diverse and exciting fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, known as the STEM disciplines.
Explore interactive demonstrations and hands-on science activities at Jumpstart Your Success with Physical Sciences! Mesa College STEM faculty will host demonstrations promoting physical sciences, including sun telescope viewing, catapult building, bridge engineering - all culminating with an exciting Exploding Volcano Demonstration!
What can take your fun day at the science center to the next level? Genius in the House! This event brings brainiacs from fields such as biology, art, engineering, mathematics and more to the Fleet to enhance the exhibit experience. This is a casual event in the exhibit galleries, not a lecture, so you'll have the chance to chat with the genius and ask questions. Explore themes from our exhibitions in ways that are both insightful and delightful.
Students from Sweetwater Unified High School district invite you to this free community event designed to inspire a love of STEM in people of all ages! Come learn about science and technology through a series of interactive booths! You can learn how a 3D printer works, learn to solder your own circuit, play with a Non-Newtonian slime, hold a snake, build a parachute to test in the wind tunnel, and much, much more!
ART SCIENCE COMPLEX has originated and designed exercises using drawing and writing to promote latent ability within the brain. Metaphorical thinking promotes both neuroplasticity and "on demand "adult neurogenesis, the mature brain's ability to quickly adapt to novel information and experiential, conceptually driven learning--segue to the generation of new neurons in the hippocampal region, as well their successful integration into the preexisting neuronal network.
This edition of Fleet Night of Science will celebrate the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering and the Fleet's newest exhibition, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition.
Bust popular myths through exciting experiments. Try to dodge a paint ball, find out what keeps you drier: running or walking through the rain, channel your inner action hero by hanging off a cliff and much more.
Drinks and food will be available for purchase.
Join the Fleet Science Center and the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering for an especially “spirited” event. On Saturday, March 10, some of San Diego’s finest bartenders and local scientists will come together at San Diego’s iconic False Idol to help us understand what it takes to concoct the perfect cocktail. Using fluid dynamics, chemical reactions and physics to create amazing drinks, bartender and scientist will converge in the attempt to dazzle your tastebuds.
The Fleet Science Center, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, and San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering are so excited to co-produce the 21+ finale event for Festival Week called: Makers and Mimosas. Grab a glass of bubbles, bring out your inner artist, and mix in a little science. It’s all here for you! Engage with local Makers as you interact and view their beautiful installations and displays. Then take a break to have some breakfast bites and engage in one of our DIY maker-stations which will include take-home items and creations.
