Sunday, March 15: STEAM Family Day in Balboa Park 

STEAM Family Day in Balboa Park is a park-wide event. Outside on the Prado, stop by the Fleet’s booth to create cornstarch sculptures and learn about the Fleet's incredible camps, clubs and events. This activity is free, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.! You can also meet Russell, the 11-foot tall, electric giraffe, in front of the Fleet. You can't miss him!

Inside the Fleet, you can interact with more than 100 exhibits, including the Tinkering Studio. Plus, catch our live science shows, Don't Try This at Home. Elsewhere in the science center, you can design a race car or a far-flying paper airplane, or design a blinking badge, thanks to San Diego’s Makers.

On STEAM Family Day we'll be offering free gallery admission or $9.95 gallery + 1 IMAX film admission for children 12 and under, accompanied by a paying adult, all day, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m
