Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar

50 Scientists. 25 Bars. One Night. All Over San Diego County.

What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is actually a fun, new community program by the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar, local scientists will enjoy something we all do: a beer and good conversation in a local bar. Join them, and ask them anything you want! They'll be easy to spot. Just look for the sign that reads: "We are scientists. Ask us anything!" 

We love hearing the questions being asked and seeing pictures of all the fun, so if you participate, be sure to post on social media, and tag the Fleet and use the hashtag #2scientists. 

The next Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar event is scheduled for June 2, 2016. It's part of the Science Is Everywhere Fleet Annual Fundraiser. Science doesn't just live in a lab! It's all around you, no matter where you are. Rather than a stuffy gala, Science Is Everywhere is a virtual event that everyone can participate in. While you're out at Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar, visit the Fleet's Facebook page (under Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, of course) between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. on June 2, and enjoy the world premiere of our Salute to Science video and other science fun, live on Facebook. You'll also find out if you're the winner of our Grand Prize: a private IMAX screening for you and 99 of your closest friends! Visit the Science is Everywhere website for more information. All donations help the Fleet, a 501(c)(3) organization, continue to connect people of all ages to the possibilities and power of science to create a better future.

Check back regularly between now and June 2, as we continue to add locations for Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar.
