In Australia, we are getting better at engaging everyday people with science.

We do it on the streets. We do it in cinemas. We do it on trains, planes and buses. We do it in our national parks and we do it in our own backyards.

It is important to engage Australians with science because it plays a significant role in our personal health and wealth, and in our collective growth as a nation.

A big reason why we, science communicators and communication researchers, are getting better at engaging the public with science is that we are learning from each other about what works and what doesn't. We, ourselves, are getting better at engaging with each other.

That is why we'd love to add your science engagement project to the national database.

You can add one project or as many projects as you want.

If you already have a project listed, feel free to update the information at any time.

Online surveys

Back to Evaluation Resources

You may wish to use an online survey to evaluate your event. To try one out, please see our example survey.

We can create an online survey for you, based on our paper survey templates. If you would like to use this service, please send a request form at least a fortnight before the event.

Online surveys remove the need for data entry before analysis. However, they tend to have lower response rates than those delivered at the time of the event. This can be because people forget about the survey after leaving the event, or because it requires extra action compared to completing one at the time.

Response rates can be increased by making the survey smartphone-friendly, or providing tablet computers so that people can complete the survey at the event.

If your event has an online registration process, you could collect some baseline data before people attend. For example, you could ask registrants to rate their knowledge on a particular topic, and compare the responses to those given after the event.
