Sustainable City

by Studio X

Can you imagine a sustainable San Diego? Sustainable City by Studio X is a city designed to improve its environmental impact through urban planning. Picture a city with more green spaces, increased use of solar energy and fewer cars.  

Join us in Studio X and help us reimagine our beloved City of San Diego using only recycled materials. Activities include designing tiny houses, eco-friendly apartment buildings, electric cars, public parks and more. Together we will imagine a more sustainable City of San Diego! 

This exhibit was created in partnership with CORI.

The Moment of Truth

By Jackie Valentine

Just a few weeks ago, the Fleet hosted our second Paper Airplane Day in the theater lobby. Participants mixed aerodynamics with origami techniques to construct a properly balanced plane.

Make Your Own Cardboard Automata

A completed automata.

Building automata is one of our favorite activities at the Tinkering Studio. It is a great way to explore how cams and levers work as well as how to incorporate movement into your art.  Automaton tells a story through its motion.

Simple automata are easy to make. We like to use cardboard boxes as a frame, but you can also use other materials such as wood or plastic cups. There are many types of automata. Look on the web for many inspirational works by automata artists who create these amazing moving machines.
