Although the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center focuses mainly on astronomy, there are also exhibits and educational programming on science and technology, human physiology, and physics. A new photographic exhibition looks at the scientific accomplishments and technological spin-offs that have resulted from NASA missions. Comet Impact is a 23-passenger simulator ride that simulates what might happen when comet Kirsch-Kennedy collides with Earth. A Teacher Resource Guide is available online as well as information on Inquiry Learning Partnership professional development, field trips, family science nights, workshops, and alignment with California Teaching Standards. The Center is also a partner with TryScience providing the experience of contemporary science and technology through on and offline interactivity with science and technology centers worldwide. There is a link to the TryScience website where there are science activities, Live Cams, and downloads.
