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. Sodas are also 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 or Science Pub speaker, please contact Josh King at or 334-734-1182.

Come beat the heat this summer with a cold drink and cool serving of science! At the June Science Pub, we'll be tackling augmented reality (AR) through the lens of Geoscience - What is it? And how can it be used both in research and education? We'll be bringing Geoscience's new AR sandboxes to make it even more special. And don't worry, both kids and adults will have the opportunity to dig into the fun!
