Did you know that each year, the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center reaches more than 110,000 students and teachers? That’s more than any other museum in San Diego! At the Fleet, every field trip becomes a science adventure. Through on-site visits and school outreach programs, we inspire today’s young people to take their place among the next generation of engineers, doctors and technicians and to enhance San Diego’s role as a cutting-edge leader in the international technology marketplace. Slashed school budgets have left fewer resources to provide essential field trip opportunities for programs that satisfy critical STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning curricula. These provide a life-changing science experience for local students, many of whom otherwise could not participate in hands-on science learning without the School Scholarship program.
Our board of trustees has put out a challenge and will match total contributions, up to $20,000 and given by December 31, 2012. Will you help provide a life-changing science experience for local students? Your gift will benefit our local students who will be our future 21st-century leaders.
With your help and the Board of Trustees’ match we will be able to accommodate even more schools and deserving students during this school year with a memorable science adventure.
Thank you for your kindness and support.
It is only through your support that our mission "to inspire lifelong learning by furthering the public understanding and enjoyment of science and technology" is made possible.
