Science is rarely a solo endeavor. There are often several people involved in a single research project, with many collaborators scattered across the globe. Travelling to conferences, journeying across continents for resources, working collaboratively between language barriers is a beautiful thread that sews the fabric of science, research and the scientists themselves. As a project of The University of Adelaide’s Women of Waite, Why Waite, Women of STEM and SuperStar of STEM, we invite the you to the Waite campus to read about the scientists’ travel. Where have they travelled from? Where have they lived? What crazy photos capture their time on this incredible planet?

Located in the McLeod House of Waite campus, a large scale world map will be available for people to pin their journey and photos. The perfect example of how collaborative science is.

Scientists will be invited to come and pin a photo to our map, join their path with thread and print new pictures that they may have not seen for years! Stories will be written on boards and the map will fill out with the inspiration of the journeys. This project will be a living and dynamic display, demonstrating to the wider community how science has a human endeavour, invites research and development from many people, places and backgrounds. This is such an important feature of science and truly one that inspires the future of science to feel excited about the journey research will literally take them!
