Maker Hour is a 21+ program offered by Studio X at the Fleet Science Center. Studio X is the Innovation and Maker Space that gives our visitors an opportunity to challenge their creativity through new experiences and exploration. Explore different STEAM topics through experimentation and enjoy an adults-only event where you can make and create using concepts that could lead to the next great innovation. Past Maker Hours have produced objects like camera obscuras for optimal eclipse viewing and comic book-themed drink coasters. 



This Summer: 

Join us on Friday nights in Studio X for evening programming during Friday Night Alive! in Balboa Park. Bring your family and friends and get hands-on with fun make-it, take-it projects.  

Cost: Add Maker Hour to your Fleet visit for just $5 per project.  

Time: 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
