About Science on the Rocks at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center
We have discovered the scientific formula for a perfect night out: Take one part fun with friends and slowly mix in two parts intriguing interaction. Then add a scoop of nibbles and a cup of libations. Cover all ingredients with live music and laughter. Let it simmer to perfection. And voila! You have Science on the Rocks—a delightful evening of unexpected activities, delicious tastes, and indulgent experiences for adults ages 21 and up. Science on the Rocks is held on select Thursday evenings, and each event features a unique theme.
Behind the Scenes
The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center is a place for people of all ages to play intelligently. An energetic group of “Fleetsters” came together to expand that spirit of smart fun through an adults-only party, held after dark in Balboa Park. And thus, Science on the Rocks was born. It has grown to be a themed party for clever Californians ages 21+; it’s a night that’s thumping with music, flowing with cocktails, and bursting with energy. Each party has a different theme, which brings a new focus to the food, features, and fun.
The Fleet is built on interaction and participation, and that’s why every Science on the Rocks party features unique, hands-on activities that resonate with the evening’s theme. And you might even learn a thing or two.
We’d love to keep you posted on all the delightful details of our next party. Like us on Facebook, join our e-mail list, and stay tuned for more fun to come. If we haven’t gotten to know you yet, then we look forward to meeting you at the next Science on the Rocks party!
