Help Support Our Annual Fundraiser
Science is Everywhere
For seven weeks, the Fleet has been challenging San Diegans to share the science in their lives through a countywide photo scavenger hunt. Participants have been submitting pictures of science to unlock new challenges and pledging donations to help support science education.

On June 2, tune in live on the Fleet's Facebook page for the explosive finale of our annual fundraiser and a chance to win awesome prizes. We will also be hosting a very special edition of Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar that evening to give you an opportunity to talk to some of the amazing science minds we have here in San Diego. More>>

Science Is Everywhere, happening now until June 2. Follow the Fleet on Facebook to see the finale!
