Research in a Suitcase


Where UAlberta grad students meet the open road!

Research in a Suitcase partners with facilities across Alberta and brings the U of A to their front door. We encourage grad students to think about packing the following items:

  • an engaging table-top conversation piece (something to draw attention)
  • some toys or colouring sheets for young kids
  • images of their research
  • an interactive game or activity (Do-It-Yourself)
  • safe lab/office instruments for items
  • a keen willingness to answer lots of questions!

Remember to engage 2- to 92-year-olds! Stay tuned for when the road calls again and your suitcase must be packed!
