Join us as Dr. Carl Hoeger of UCSD and Thomas Bleakley of Malahat Spirits give us a tour through the distillery and discuss the process, chemistry and subtle details that go into creating local spirits. This is your monthly chance to connect with other curious scientific minds over a rum tasting and take part in an in-depth discussion about important scientific topics. The Fleet partners with local bars and scientists to bring you an evening with a fun-yet-informative presentation, which kicks off an extended discussion between the scientist and the audience—all while the audience drinks along.

FLEET SCIENCE CENTER
"The Fleet Science Center seeks to inspire lifelong learning by furthering the public understanding and enjoyement of science and technology"
- Our Mission Statement
The Fleet Science Center features more than 100 interactive science exhibits in eight galleries, as well as major travelling exhibitions. Visitors can touch a tornado, create colored shadows, examine the vibration of guitar strings and get their hands on a variety of intriguing scientific phenomena.
The Fleet Science Center is also home to the world's first IMAX Dome Theater, presenting the biggest films on the planet. Its unique configuration wraps the audience in images and provides the illusion of being suspended in space. The Eugene Heikoff and Marilyn Jacobs Heikoff Dome Theater takes audiences from outer space to under water and every place in between, and films are generally suitable for all ages. San Diego's only Giant Dome Theater also plays host to planetarium shows, including the monthly Sky Tonight show, which is led by an astronomer and followed by outdoor telescope viewing, curtesy of the San Diego Astronomy Association.
