Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar

Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar

Thursday, January 11, 2018
5:30–7:30 p.m.
Society Brewing Company
8262 Clairemont Mesa Blvd San Diego, CA 92111

What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is actually a fun, new community program by the Fleet Science Center. During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar, local scientists will enjoy something we all do: a 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!" 

We love hearing the questions being asked and seeing pictures of all the fun, so if you participate, be sure to post on social media, and tag the Fleet and use the hashtag #2scientists. 

5:30–7:30 p.m.

The Physics of Fidget Spinners

The Physics of Fidget Spinners

Saturday, January 27, 2018
1–4 p.m.
Linda Vista Library
2160 Ulric St., San Diego, CA 92111

In this Library NExT workshop, fidget spinners aren’t a distraction they’re a tangible lesson in the laws of physics. Students explore concepts of energy conservation, how motion transfers heat and the law of gravity and tension to gain an understanding of why some fidget spinners spin longer and why some are louder than others. Students are welcome to bring their own fidget spinners, and there will be spinners for in-class use only.
