The Fleet brings meaning to the wonder of science. We believe science is in everything and education is the foundational starting point for discovery and curiosity. All of the experiences we create are designed to bring out the inner scientist in your students and facilitate learning both in and beyond classrooms. We offer interactive learning experiences at the Fleet, at schools throughout San Diego County and in the community.
