Your Guide to the Fleet
Reuben H. Fleet Science Center
Grandparents' Day
Kelly Slater THE ULTIMATE WAVE TAHITI is getting rave reviews, but you don't have to take our word for it! "Short of spending $1,660 on a plane ticket, the Fleet's giant IMAX screen will give the closest paradise encounter (and Slater encounter, sigh) many of us will ever get," says Keli Dailey at the San Diego U-T. "The surfing sequences are so exciting that at the screening I attended, audience members cheered when Kelly rode unbelievably dangerous waves," shares film critic, David Dixon. Looking for something else? We're also showing HUBBLE and THE LIVING SEA daily - two more reasons to visit the Fleet to see a great IMAX film!

Make sure to check out "Earth Exposed," which includes more than 25 exhibits erupting with water, misting clouds and blowing air. Or, take the "Block Busters!" challenge and see what kind of creative, tall or just plain wacky structures you can build with more than 15,000 KEVA planks. Need inspiration? Check this out.
