If you are old enough to have been lost, you can appreciate how quickly mapping technology is changing field science. It wasn’t that long ago that my trips involved stacks of maps and my shaky sense of location.
Family and community are at the heart of what makes RMBL unique. It is tempting to think of scientists as lonely figures in white lab coats working late at night amongst test tubes and beakers. But there are as many ways of being a scientist as there are scientists. The importance of family and community at RMBL has a big impact on our science.
This month we are launching a new communications effort with this newsletter. We’ll use this platform to share with you – the RMBL community – researchers, students, visitors, donors – our evolving thoughts and ideas about how RMBL can manifest this vision.
