The Adventure of Science initiative is implemented by the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), and works closely with the UNESCO Almaty Cluster Office, the Paul Scherer Institute, the Girls on Ice initiative and Central Asian Institute of Applied Geosciences (CAIAG).

In September 2019, the project organized a 7-day expedition to investigate the Golubin Glacier in Ala-Archa, Kyrgyzstan, which composed of 15 women and aimed to popularize science among women. After completion, it was decided to conduct the second expedition in September 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is recommended to hold an online meeting.
