Fleet Night of Science

The next exciting Fleet Night of Science will be held on March 23, 2018, celebrating the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering and the Fleet's newest exhibition, MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition.

Fleet Night of Science is a kid-free event for adults 21 and up. Come in and cut loose! Adult beverages will be available for purchase.

Does toast always land butter-side down? What keeps you drier: running in the rain or walking through it? Can you really pull a tablecloth off of a fully set table without disturbing a dish? In this amazing hands-on exhibition, you can put these myths to the test—just as the team from the popular MythBusters TV show has done for years! Use scientific observations and your own curiosity to search for the truth behind some commonly held beliefs. MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition includes live demonstrations, visitor participation and spectacular props from the TV show.

Your Fleet Night of Science includes exclusive grownups-only access to MythBusters: The Explosive Exhibition, plus:

  • Compete for prizes in a giant-sized Cards Against Humanity, featuring the new science pack!
  • Explore another new Fleet exhibition, Taping Shape 2.0, plus the trusty tornado, the mesmerizing turntable, those loudmouthed whisper dishes and all your Fleet favorites.
  • Get up close with bacteria and find out if the "Five-Second Rule" is a myth or the truth.
  • Enter Studio X to make your own souvenir (and yes, you can take it home!).
  • Play science trivia with Robert Timothy—archeologist, comedian and our esteemed trivia host.
  • Mingle with scientists and learn science-related party tricks that will impress the crowd at your next shindig.

Don't "myth" this amazing event!

Date & Time: March 23, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

About Fleet Night of Science

No kids. All fun. Fleet Night of Science is a quarterly 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.
