The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center plans to celebrate 2000 by spotlighting San Diego’s most innovative science and technology developments.
The center is teaming with other local organizations and tech companies to create TechnoVation, an exhibit scheduled to open March 1.
Participants include Applied Microcircuits Corp.; Connectnet, Inc.; Qualcomm Inc.; Science Applications International Corp.; Sony Electronics, Inc.; Scripps Mericos Eye Institute; Coleman College and Computer Museum; the county Water Resource Management Program; and the San Diego County Water Authority.
“Our goal is to make the Fleet the place to go to learn what’s new in technology and science,” said Jeffrey Kirsch, executive director of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. “Visitors will discover some of the most cutting-edge technologies ever developed. Students will see it’s cool to stay in school and take science and math courses so they too can become a part of the excitement in San Diego’s destiny as a major center for high-tech research and development.”
TechnoVation will be the official kick-off for the city of San Diego’s “Technology’s Perfect Climate” month, part of “San Diego 2000,” a yearlong program celebrating the millennium in San Diego.
