On Monday, August 21, 2017, The Great American Eclipse will occur in San Diego. We’ll be hosting multiple events at the Fleet Science Center that morning and would love to have you come join us! We’ll also be hosting a number of different run up events and have our resident astronomer, Dr. Lisa Will, available for interview in the days and weeks leading up to the actual event as well.
The eclipse will be visible from 9:07 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. on August 21. It will reach its maximum point of eclipse in San Diego at 10:23 a.m. Totality will be visible from other parts of the country, but in San Diego we will only see a partial eclipse. We won’t see another solar eclipse until 2023, so don’t miss this one!
Some people think video games are only good for mindless entertainment, but technology developed in the gaming industry is being used for everything from brain research to drug development to innovative therapies for stroke patients. On select Thursdays of every month the Fleet invites local scientists, researchers and engineers to talk about how video game technology is helping them find imaginative solutions to the world’s challenges.
This free all ages event draws over 100,000 people from across San Diego for three days of fun, music, delectable food, and of course – plenty of German beer!

Our next Little Mensches event – as well as our 4 year anniversary celebration – is taking place on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 1:00-2:00 at the JCC. The children will be putting together “necessity kits” for the homeless containing items such as socks, granola bars, antibacterial wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, as well as cards containing information about where to get services in the area. We also plan to have crafts for the children to do at the event, along with music, food, storytelling, and lots of celebration for 4 years’ worth of good deeds.
