Science Is Everywhere

Science Is Everywhere logo

Science doesn’t just live in a lab. It surrounds you everywhere, no matter where you are. We believe the exploration of science has the power to transform and inspire you.

This year, Science Is Everywhere, our 2016 annual fundraiser, aims to encourage San Diegans to discover the science all around them through a series of science photo challenges. The challenges were conducted on social media (through the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages), inspiring San Diegans to find everything from fractals to bubbles.

The fundraiser is culminating in an explosive finale on Thursday, June 2, on the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center Facebook page, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. All you have to do to be a part of it is tune in to our Facebook page during that hour. We'll be live, giving away prizes and providing science demonstrations and behind-the-scenes peeks at the Fleet. Feel free to like our live videos, and comment or ask questions.

And you can still donate! All proceeds help the Fleet conect people of all ages to the possibilities and power of science to create a better future. For more information about Science Is Everywhere, visit

The Fleet is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. We are San Diego’s science center. We envision a future where the power of science is accessible to everyone—everywhere—to create a better world. Whether in the Fleet facility or out in the community, we take science beyond the classroom and create meaningful experiences that open a world of possibility.
