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

HEAT of the Moment: Are Cities Getting Hotter?

Tuesday, October 17th, 6:30-7:30pm @ Mama Mocha's Coffee Emporium

With nearly 75-80% of the world predicted to live in urban areas within the next few decades, urban "heat islands" are of increasing concern-- but what are they and how can we help? And as cities grow in both size and population, we should expect even larger environmental impacts, especially on temperature and rainfall. So what do we do? Paint city roofs white? Plant more trees? Or something else? Join us at the October Science Café to find out!
