Starting the New Year off right
January 2016
Dear Friend,
Happy New Year! Thanks to your generous support of our year-end campaign, the Fleet is kicking off 2016 with exciting plans to connect you and your family, friends, colleagues, neighborhood and community with the enjoyment of STEM learning.
In a true celebration of science in San Diego, the Fleet will open four new exhibitions in January. Beginning with Super Cells: The Power of Stem Cells opening on Saturday, January 23 followed by the Art of Science Learning opening on Friday, January 29, and finally, Taping Shape, an indoor landscape made with hundreds of rolls of packing tape, and Zoo in You: The Human Microbiome on Saturday, January 30. A feat like this requires significant manpower and resources. Thanks to the success of our year-end campaign, we are up to the task.
In addition to the tidal wave of new exhibitions, our work beyond the Science Center walls is thriving. Our community program 52 Weeks of Science is in full swing in Barrio Logan and the Fleet is beginning preparations to launch in a second San Diego neighborhood. This month we are doing something a little different with our adult program Suds & Science by hosting  Get Soaked! The Science and History Behind the 1916 Hatfield Flood in partnership with the San Diego History Center on January 28.
It's a busy time at the Fleet and we wouldn't have it any other way. We intend to make good on our promise to expand our programming, further our reach, and engage our friends and supporters like you in the wonder of STEM learning throughout the next year and beyond.
Thank you again for your ongoing support and involvement with the Fleet, we hope to see you soon.
