A Scientist and an Artist Walk into a Bar

50 Scientists—and Artists! 25 Bars. One Night. All Over San Diego County.

I will be at:
Wavelength Brewing Company
236 Main St, Vista, CA 92084
6:00pm - 8:00pm

What sounds like the beginning of a rather bad joke is actually a fun community program by the Fleet Science Center. During Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar℠, local scientists will enjoy something we all do: a beer and good conversation in a local bar. Join them, and ask them anything you want! They'll be easy to spot. Just look for the sign that reads: "We are scientists. Ask us anything!" 

We are happy to announce that our next event on Thursday, March 9, will be part of the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering! To help celebrate science in San Diego, we are excited to host a "Two Scientists Special Edition: A Scientist and an Artist Walk Into a Bar." 

In this artistic variant on our popular Two Scientists Walk into a Bar program, we add a special twist by inviting artists to the mix. For this special edition, we have partnered with the San Diego Art Insititute, who will bring together artists and scientists in their upcoming exhibition "Extra-Ordinary Collusion: Art & Science Collaboration." Many of the artists and scientists you'll meet during our March 9 event are participating in the exhibition.

We love hearing the questions being asked and seeing pictures of all the fun, so if you participate, be sure to post on social media, and tag the Fleet and use the hashtag #2scientists

Stay tuned and visit over the next couple of weeks as we update the information on participating bars, artists and scientists.
