What is National Caravan 3 Questions?

This anonymous research poster exhibition event features query posters carrying the answers to three questions posed to 100 researchers and research organizations. The questions include, “What mystery are you pursuing?” “What have you done so far and what are you working toward?” and finally, “Please ask the viewing public a question or two!” The research topics are not confined to any particular field of research. The idea of making the researchers behind each poster anonymous is to allow the exhibits to skirt the tendency of people to judge research content based solely on the name of the research’s expertise and the organization with which they are affiliated. The aim of the event is to generate fundamental academic conversations that focus entirely on the questions that each research topic is pursuing.
