Season 3: Citizen SciGirls Outreach Evaluation

December 20th, 2017 | EVALUATION

A three day TTT session was held in May 2015 at Twin Cities PBS in St. Paul, MN to train nine representatives from NGCP State Collaboratives in the SciGirls Seven and Citizen SciGirls project materials (episodes, activities). NGCP chose the nine leaders (from nine states) through an application process specifically targeting regions who had not previously received training on SciGirls research-based strategies. These trainers were then expected to hold two training sessions with up to 30 educators at each session between fall of 2015 and fall of 2016. Fourteen sessions were held reaching approximately 226 educators and concluded with an evaluation of the training. To get a better understanding of the impact of the training, each trained educator was invited to complete a follow up survey in December 2016. Forty-five educators completed the survey and several educators agreed to participate in a follow-up phone interview. These educators were contacted to collect additional details regarding the outcomes of the training and implementation of citizen science programs at their institution.
