Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar: Women to the Rescue

Thu, Mar 08 - 5:30pm to 9:30pm

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 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 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.

Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar™ returns on Thursday, March 8, which not-so-coincidentally is also International Women's Day! We are excited to host this very special Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar event during the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering week. Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar™—Women to the Rescue! features 50 local female scientists ready to answer any science questions you might have.

Check the Fleet website ( to see if Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar™ will be at your favorite watering hole. Times vary by location.
