Make-It Workshop

Nov 23, 2019 - Jan 25, 2020

As Tim Gunn is fond of saying, “Make it work!” That’s the idea behind our Make-It Workshop, a creative and interactive space for innovators and other curious minds. We invite you to stop by the newly redesigned Studio X on Saturdays to try your hand at various activities. We’ve made everything from hydraulic arms to camera obscuras for optimal eclipse viewing. Make-It Workshop activities change monthly, and fees vary. Open to makers of all ages (participants 12 and under need an adult collaborator). For more information or to register, visit fleetscience.org/make-it. Prices for workshops are per project.

Adult Recess

Nov 24, 2019 - Jan 5, 2020

Unwind from a long week with an adult beverage, extended evening hours and a night of science fun at the Fleet, just for grownups. Adult Recess provides your chance to take over the Fleet's newest exhibition featuring adult-sized recess activities, Pause|Play. Zip down a 31-foot-long slide that clocks your speed, dig into augmented-reality sandboxes and take a dip into the adult-sized ball pit. In between activities, head to the bar to get a drink and linger awhile to enjoy the music. This event is part of “The Art of Summer,” Balboa Park’s summer celebration.
