Join us each month for a night of science, good drinks, tasty sweets, and great conversations! At the AU Science Cafe and Science Pub, you'll have the opportunity to sit down and talk about new and exciting science and technology with scientists in our community, all the while relaxing in a great local food and drink venue.

The event is FREE and open to all of the public. No science background is required, and no question is too silly to ask!

This 60 minute event generally occurs the 4th Tuesday (Science Cafe) or Thursday (Science Pub) of each month, alternating between our Pub and Cafe locations every month. All ages are welcome to attend both events. Proceeds from the Drymarchon Berliner Weisse drink at Red Clay Brewery benefit the Alabama Natural Heritage Program at Auburn University and their efforts to conserve rare species in Alabama, such as the Indigo snake. Sodas will also be available for purchase at the Science Pub location. See our schedule below for our next speaker and further details. For any other questions, or if you are interested in being a Science Cafe speaker, please contact Josh King at or 334-734-1182.

Redder Males are Better Males

Tuesday, March 28th, 6:30-7:30pm @ Mama Mocha's Coffee Emporium

Would you date someone for their fancy red shirt? What if they always wore you favorite color? While this may sound strange, this can happen in the world of birds. The same red plumage that makes a bird breathtaking to the human eye will land a bird with a huge crush. Join us at the March Science Café for the surprising world of color in nature, why redder males are better males, and a new take on who gets the girl.
