Fleet Night of Science

Childhood Playground Nostalgia

No kids. All fun. Fleet Night of Science is an after-hours event for chic geeks 21+. You get the science center all to yourself (no kids allowed!) to explore exhibits, sip cocktails, enjoy snacks, listen to music and get your geek on with science experiments, clever chats and delightfully nerdy experiences. You might learn the physics of beer pong (while playing the game, of course) or ask an astronomer your burning questions about Mars. You could enjoy a science comedy show or design a stomp rocket. Your ticket gives you access to the Fleet’s exhibits and the evening’s science-infused fun. Food and beverages are available for purchase, and proceeds support the Fleet’s nonprofit mission of realizing a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science.

Join us on Saturday, March 9 from 7 to 10 p.m. for our next installation of Fleet Night of Science—Childhood Playground Nostalgia!

Remember those days when the platform of a slide magically turned into the deck of a pirate ship, or when a swing set gave you the feeling of flying? Come and relive the days of unabashed playfulness, fantasy and pure joy with the Fleet’s Science Center’s new exhibition, Pause|Play, where you can enjoy an adult-sized slide, get lost in a maze and experience what it is like to play “drunk basketball.” Let your inner child out as we (try to) recapture our youth (ow! My back!). Build a fort, participate in a game of dodgeball and get your Nerf on in this adults-only event at the Fleet Science Center. And when you need to rest (or stretch), enjoy a scientific talk about the importance of play on social, emotional, cognitive and health benefits of play. Relive your childhood and explore the Fleet’s newest exhibition, Pause|Play, at Fleet Night of Science on Saturday, March 9. Be there or be square!

Adult beverages and food will be available for purchase.
