Evaluation of the Royal Institution's Science for Schools Programme

Funded by:

the Royal Institution / the Royal Society


September 2006 - January 2007

The Royal Institution runs a programme of science events for schools. In London this has been run from their lecture theatre in Albermarle Street, and in recent years a programme has also run in the North West and South West. IPSE conducted an evaluation of this Science for Schools programme. The aims were to explore the views of schools and other stakeholders as to the effectiveness of the science for schools programme and develop the programme's evaluation strategy.

The evaluation also informed decisions about the future development of the programme. The evaluation involved observation of case study events, interviews with teachers, interviews with other science educators and a short questionnaire to schools asking about their use of out-of-classroom science learning.
