After Hours Activities

Birmingham SCI Cafe

Join other science geeks (and science novices) for an exciting presentation, lively discussion and a little science trivia at the Birmingham SCI Cafe, every third Tuesday 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.

We are excited to announce a new development in our series. Beginning in July, Birmingham Science Café (hosted by McWane Science Center) is merging with SCI Talks (hosted by the Civitan International Research Center at UAB). By combining our efforts, we hope to give scientifically curious people the opportunity to interact with scientists, researchers and enthusiast from diverse fields. We look forward to the opportunities that this new partnership will bring to the Birmingham community.
