Science Center resumes Distance Learning Hubs

The Fleet Science Center resumed operations for the Distance Learning Hubs to serve the ongoing needs of parents, students and teachers in the San Diego community to find a place for children to do their distance learning programs. The full-day program combines a facilitated space for kids to complete their schoolwork with an afternoon of hands-on science activities.

Distance Learning Hubs provide a space where students can continue learning while schools operate remotely in an environment that allows for safely-distanced social interaction at the Fleet Science Center. 

Distance Learning Hubs support the needs of the San Diego community and extend the Fleet’s mission of bringing science education to students in ways that are fun, engaging and accessible. The program was developed in response to the increased demand from parents and educators for additional distance learning resources. 

The program is available for children in grades 1-6.

From its inception on September 21, 2020, 230 students have attended the program with 199 of the seats being provided at no cost. In an effort to reach more students and families, the Fleet Science Center continues to provide the Distance Learning Hubs at no cost to qualifying students.

The Fleet Science Center is devoted to having hands-on experiences for all of the students in an environment that is positive, fun and safe. To learn more about the Fleet’s program policies and FAQs regarding programs, visit www.fleetscience.org/youth-programs-policies-and-faqs.
