An edit-a-thon organised by quantum research staff and students at the Australian National Fabrication Facility, UNSW raising awareness about supporting women in science and pathways for research & higher studies.


Caddie, Matt and Robert assisted the three UNSW organisers Andre, Amanda and Nivaaz. There were 14 registrations from Eventbrite with 10 people attending.


Two senior academics from UNSW spoke about their experiences and how they got to where they are now.

Participants selected from a list of women who did not have articles on Wikipedia, pre-prepared by the organisers. Most participants had pre-registered for a Wikipedia account and joined the Event Metrics Dashboard.

Caddie and Robert presented an overview of Wikipedia editing.

Participants drafted articles in their user sandbox. Time did not permit publication at the event. The UNSW organisers indicated interest in holding another edit-a-thon.

  • Attendee count: 10
