Capturing impact

Evaluation models & tools built around the theories of science capital.

Capturing Impact has been developed to help anyone working in physics education and outreach with evaluating their activities. It includes a series of tools to help evaluate different aspects of activities and some pointers on analysis and ethics.

The toolkit has been devised, in consultation with the Trust, by Public Engagement and Involvement Consultant, Dr Charlotte Thorley – who has worked with the Ogden network of outreach officers to test and refine the suggested evaluation models and approaches which have been built around the theories of science capital.

Although the initial toolkit concept was developed to help the Trust evaluate its programmes and the impact of the activities it funds, the top tips, models and suggested approached to evaluation can be applied by anyone working in science outreach
