Join other science geeks (and science novices) for an exciting presentation, lively discussion and a little science trivia at John’s City Diner in downtown Birmingham (112 Richard Arrington Jr Blvd N). All SCI Cafes are free to the public and no science background is required. The fun begins at 6 pm with science trivia, then continues with the guest speaker at 6:30 pm.
Birmingham SCI Café is hosted by McWane Science Center and the Civitan International Research Center at UAB. In combining our efforts, we’re able to give scientifically curious people the opportunity to interact with scientists, researchers and enthusiasts from diverse fields.
