Pi, pie, me oh my! Celebrate Pi Day and Albert Einstein’s Birthday, as we salute all things circular and Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s 40th Anniversary Year! Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s Next Science on the Rocks (Adults-Only Evening) "Pizza, Pinot and Pi" on Thursday, March 14, At 6:30pm! Indulge in a decadent night of discovery, with exclusive access to tasty temptations, engaging entertainment, and inspired interaction.
Our first two Science on the Rocks, the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s after-hours party for adults 21 and older, sold out, so don’t delay! A truly decadent time was had by all at both “The Sweet Science of Chocolate” and “Tap This: The Art of the Brew.”
Meet local vintners from Bernardo Winery, Orrin Vineyards & Winery, La Serenissima Vineyard & Winery, Rock Canyon Vineyards and PRP Wine International and share their expertise "In Vino Veritas" and samples of their "Nectar of the Gods."
Tasting tokens are included with your ticket. Or pick your own pleasure and hit the no-host full bar from BarWorks, offering beer, wine, and cocktails. You can also indulge in tempting tastes from Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, Barleymash, Pop Chips and Uptown Tavern, with pies from Sammy’s Wood-Fired Pizza and Coco’s Bakery!
Pi Day activities will include the chance to test your drawing skills and explore the effects of circular rotation as you create drawings and patterns on a monster turntable.
Take a wineglass photo and study refraction and reflection as you see your friends’ image “flip” in the photo through the wine glass. As a treat to take with you, express your innate artistic tendencies in shrinky dink wine charms––plastic, markers, wire––and inspiration! After creating your masterpiece, we heat them and they bounce back into their original disorder, causing the plastic to shrink and thicken.
Learn how to conquer inertia while hula-hooping––you don’t have to measure the circumference of the hoop to reclaim childhood! Join in all these activities while having fun, dancing to a soundscape by Sunset Mobile Music and creating your own A Little Scene Flip Books. We would also like to acknowledge generous donations from Pacific Event Productions, Uber, ProDigital and Cort Trade Show & Event Furnishings.
You may not become an oenophile or learn derivations of the A to Z for vintage terms, but sampling wine and having a great time is guaranteed!
All proceeds benefit the Fleet’s nonprofit mission of furthering the public understanding and enjoyment of science and technology.
