Summary: In this article, we describe the outcome of a mathematical collaboration between a university lecturer and an undergraduate student. The resulting investigation concerned a particular divisibility property of the Fibonacci numbers, and indeed it seems that a new result was found in this regard. An interesting point to be made here is that, although the mathematical content was relatively straightforward, this joint exploration did, in a very modest sense, mirror certain key aspects of the research process.
