Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar

… What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is a fun, new community program by the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.

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

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!"
