Fleet Night of Science—Childhood Playground Nostalgia

Sat, Mar 09 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

Fleet Night of Science—Childhood Playground Nostalgia
Remember those days when the platform of a slide magically turned into the deck of a pirate ship, or when a swing set gave you the feeling of flying? Come and relive the days of unabashed playfulness, fantasy and pure joy with the Fleet’s Science Center’s new exhibition, Pause|Play, where you can enjoy an adult-sized slide, get lost in a maze and experience what it is like to play “drunk basketball.” Let your inner child out as we (try to) recapture our youth (ow! My back!). Build a fort, participate in a game of dodgeball and get your Nerf on in this adults-only event at the Fleet Science Center. And when you need to rest (or stretch), enjoy a scientific talk about the importance of play on social, emotional, cognitive and health benefits of play. Relive your childhood and explore the Fleet’s newest exhibition, Pause|Play, at Fleet Night of Science on Saturday, March 9. Be there or be square!

Adult beverages and food will be available for purchase.
