Eval11 Poster 126: Building Evaluation Capacity in Informal Science Edcation through Strategic Collaboratoin

Poster Abstract: A major goal of Informal Science Education (ISE) is to address and improve upon, the lack of standardized tools and strategies to effectively measure outcomes and impacts across programs. Through a dynamic collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s DEVISE (Developing, Validating and Implementing Situated Evaluations) project and Harvard Medical School’s Program in Education, Afterschool, and Resiliency (PEAR), we intend to test and validate existing, new, or modified instruments in afterschool settings and in projects that engage the public in scientific research (sometimes referred to as “citizen science”)
