Kayla, aka “a wild naturalist” (see her super cool Insta @the.wild.naturalist!) shares her Bag of Science:
“My way late entry for @scicommchall ‘s January #scicommchall “What’s in your #bagofscience ?”
In my interpretive hiking pack, I *try* to always carry:
– Interpretive materials
– Handbook of the Canadian Rockies ( )
– Personal notebook
– Ski strap(s) ⛓
– Compressed puffy
– Crystal screen and magnifying loupe
– Avaluator card ❄️
– Sunscreen and SPF lip balm
– Rite in the Rain & pencil
– Hand and toe warmers
– Portable battery charger
– Suunto watch ⏰
– First aid kit
– Mitts & liners
– A warm toque
My pack changes and evolves depending on the theme of the hike and the season. For example, in the summer I don’t need the Avaluator, but I’ll also throw a couple of mountain goat legs in there.
PS – It took me like, 45 minutes to arrange this to be aesthetic. #noragrets“
Hannah, aka “Science and Glitter”, shows us her Bag of Science! What does a clinical scientist need every day? Check it out below or on her Instagram @Science_and_Glitter!
“WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG?
I traded in my lab bench for an open work space and my pipettes for a work phone. The contents of my bag has changed a lot recently. As a clinical scientist, I sit on the 6th floor of building 40 and we have an open work space. That means each morning we pick a different open desk in the workspace. So, I have to bring all my essentials with me wherever I sit. I’ve got headphones and chargers for on the go phone calls, lotion, chapstick, and cold medicine to survive winter, and a granola bar in case I get hangry. …

For our “Bag of Science” #SciCommChall, Kim shows us what is essential in life: Conductivity cells and pom-poms. Glad I challenged her to join us!

What‘s in your (science) bag? It’s the January #scicommchall
I must admit, my bag is not very science-y. I usually carry coffee and water around with me (stay hydrated friends!) as well as some tools for quick notes and feel-good goodies like hand cream.
Are there any science things in your bag that you carry around because they’re so handy?
Sara (check out her Insta at @frauwissenschaft!) is telling us about her #bagofscience
Die @scicommchall für Januar lautet: “What’s in your science bag.” Puh, da wird einem erstmal klar, dass ich immer zwei Taschen mit mir herum trage und manchmal sogar eine dritte Tasche. Also los geht’s!
Tasche Nr. 1
Businessplaner 2020 für alle Termine, Aufgaben, Projektplanungen und den ganz normalen Wahnsinn gleich mit. Notizbuch, für alles unkoordinierte, was noch geplant werden muss.
Dokumentenmappe für alle Zettel, Textmarker, sowie 2 Bücher, die ich aktuell zum Paper Schreiben benötige.
KiSOC-Sammelmappe für andere Dokumente.
Kopfhörer fürs Arbeiten und auch um sich manchmal konzentriert im Großraumbüro zum Arbeiten zurück ziehen zu können.
Festplatte für die Backups (wichtig!), @drsamson , mein Datenschutzbeauftragter , erinnert mich regelmäßig daran!
Sowie die flic Buttons für meine Erhebung plus Ersatzbatterien, Stifte, Anspitzer und einen USB-Stick.
Tasche Nr. 2
Mein Arbeits-Laptop mit Stromkabel, Stiften und Post-its.
Tasche Nr. 3
Meine eigene VR-Brille mit meinem 360° Film für Wissenschaftskommunikation. Sowie Zubehör: Controller, USB Kabel zum Datenüberspielen und Aufladen, Brillenträgerzubehör, Batterien für den Controller, Reinigungstuch, Bedienungsanleitung.

@magisterhistoriae join our Januarys SciCommChall and shows us his bag of science 🙂 we are excited about that and very happy that you’re joining our #scicommchall– be very welcome 🙂 1. Taschentücher, 2. Ein Spindschloss für Notfall-Bibliotheks-Besuche, 3. Stifte, 4. Kalender und Notizbuch, 5. Treu ergebener Laptop, 6. Kopfhörer für konzentriertes Arbeiten
For January’s #scicommchall, we are doing a “what’s in your science bag?” thing! Mirjam writing:
I am excited! Some of my stuff might actually be specific to my #wavewatching and #kitchenoceanography obsessions. Or they might not be, you tell me: What’s in YOUR bag and why?
In any case, here we go with mine:
- This is my absolute favourite handbag of all times! It’s always stuffed, but I love it! I carry this on me wherever I go, and my work bag comes in addition to this (give me a shout if you would want to see that one, too). All the stuff around it in the picture usually lives inside
- Not so surprising: A little card holder with all the cards I need to carry
- And a little coin pouch
- Emergency tea. Can’t get caught anywhere without some. Clearly have to restock, this is my least favourite of the favourites I usually carry with me. Also great as dye tracer in a pickle
- A spork. Because no single-use plastic! Also for stirring, measuring, that kind of stuff in experiments (we use food dyes, no worries…)
- I carry some minerals to prevent (or quickly counteract) cramps. No oceanography connection there
- Seem to have skipped no 7 on the picture! Probably to make up for something not pictured, because I was working with it when I decided to accept this challenge and it therefore wasn’t in my handbag: My (tiny) bullet journal
- Pens! Several. One waterproof, because #kitchenoceanography. Where is my pencil? Seems to have gotten lost
- Sticky notes! Always need them
- My battery bank for my phone, because my phone holds my life. And I need it to take pictures and movies, to write notes, to do Social Media with it or blog on it. The battery bank is heavy, but for me totally worth always carrying it with me
- Headphones, charging cables for my phone & battery bank, that kinda stuff
- Oh, now it’s getting interesting! A selfie stick and a microphone for my phone to do wave watching selfie videos with, after I realized how horrible the sound quality was when I was on a Swedish research ship a couple of months ago
- A fabric bag because I always end up having to carry stuff somewhere and, as you see, the handbag is tiny
- Ziploc bags. Because you always find cool stuff at the beach… At least I do 🙂
- Emergency cash and emergency plasters
- The pouch where the plasters are supposed to be, together with some emergency stuff against headaches, a tiny pocket knife (which I use SO MUCH!) and the very much undervalued lip balm. Which has saved tank experiments several tanks when something was leaking, everybody was freaking out, and I was just like “let me get my lip balm from my hand bag…”
- Paint swatches that I got when my nieces and I went to the crafts store because we had the deal that everybody could get three and only three, and I decided that “everybody” should include me 😉
- A small scarf and wooly hat, because wave watching happens outside and I like my throat and ears to be warm
- A measuring tape. Because knitting, and then I forgot it was there
And what’s in your bag?
Nenas @nena_weiler bag of science in January shows us her most important thing in her backpack (she never has a handbag) which is her binocular to explore the nature everywhere and every time. Also with her mostly is a tube to store exciting nature-stuff to look on closer.
What’s in your bag?
