Adult Programs

Science Everywhere - For Everyone!

The Fleet offers programs both at the science center, and out in the community.  Check out a variety of programs for all ages, including our adult programs, teacher programs, youth programs, and school programs.

Suds & Science

It’s not a scientific mystery that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. These monthly events bring scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. The evening begins with a short fun-yet-informative presentation, which kicks off an extended discussion between the scientist and the audience. You can learn about everything from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes.  Learn more about Suds & Science.

Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar

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!" Learn more about Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar.
