On Thursday 14 August 2014, to celebrate National Science Week, the Academy held its first Wikibomb. More than 140 people registered to help us increase the presence on Wikipedia of Australian women of science, engineering, and mathematics. With the support of Wikimedia and working online and at physical events in Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, the Wikibomb participants together created 118 new pages.
Thank you to everybody who gave up their time to help raise the profile of great Australian scientists and mathematicians. For a full list of the new pages created, visit Wikipedia.
