The Fleet Science Center

Bringing Stem Out Into The Community

The Fleet Science Center connects people of all ages to the possibilities and power of science to create a better future. Our mission is to realize a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science.

OUR STORY

In 2019, the Fleet Science Center took a strategic step in our growth as a countywide organization. We started conversations with people from six communities across three cities that span San Diego County. We asked these educators, business owners, parents and community leaders how Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) can serve their communities. Their answers, and ongoing discussions about STEM, are now generating plans, programs and partnerships to connect everyone in their communities to the power of science.

This year the Fleet also grew our many exhibits, events and programs, engaging 450,380 people, 173,862 of whom were students and youth, in a variety of educational STEM experiences across the county. It is thanks to the generosity of our members and supporters that students have the opportunity to experience the best of what the Fleet Science Center has to offer, whether in their neighborhood libraries and schools or in Balboa Park. Each day your support helps us in our mission—to realize a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science—and we are very grateful. Thank you!

STEM IS EVERYWHERE

The Fleet works with communities to leverage STEM in support of neighborhood goals, such as creating access to STEM education at local libraries, schools, community centers and local businesses or addressing specific challenges by tapping into the Fleet’s network of STEM professionals. The Fleet strives to put STEM at the service of the community.

FLEET SCIENCE CENTER IN BALBOA PARK

Embracing our role as a place where families interested in science come to celebrate STEM and to be inspired, the Fleet continues to upgrade experiences at the Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. Plans for the future include reimagining the gallery experience using community-informed feedback to create a destination where communities come together around science.

CONNECTING WITH EDUCATORS AND SCIENTISTS

The Fleet is dedicated to our community’s teachers, giving them ongoing opportunities to expand and deepen their STEM teaching skills. More than 1,000 educators participated in our Fleet Inquiry Institute programs in 2019. San Diego has a multitude of amazing scientists and engineers, and the Fleet’s goal is to connect these professionals with the community in ways that benefit both—from casual conversations at our Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar program to problem-solving discussions between a community with an issue and the experienced engineers we know. To provide science at the service of the community, the Fleet shares access to resources that help us all grow.

Austin’s status as an entrepreneurial powerhouse is known across the nation and the world. Though always on the “nation’s top” lists (Hottest Labor Market in the US – Wall Street Journal 2019; One of the top 10 Global Technology Innovation Hubs

– KPMG; No.1 for growth over the last decade
– Brookings Institution 2019), Austin was not always the “Silicon Hills” it is today. Wrst of its kind in America, named the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation (MCC). MCC Onseque quibust, si tent faccupt atiisinctur?
