Make-It Workshop

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.

LGBTQ+San Diego

Jul 8, 2018 - ongoing

In 1982, a Naval Intelligence Service investigation in San Diego to “ferret out the lesbians” aboard the submarine tender USS Dixon subjected twelve women to months of ordeal and ended in the dishonorable discharge of three of them. Just thirty-six years later, Sen. Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) became the first openly gay Senate leader in California’s state history.

To highlight this and other stories of perseverance and achievement, the San Diego History Center is partnering with Lambda Archives of San Diego to bring the first exhibition on the history of San Diego’s LGBTQ+ community to Balboa Park.
