The Carnegie Science Center (CSC), in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Learning in Out-of-School Environments, will develop an institution-wide approach to evaluation. Project activities include defining goals and evaluation areas, developing tools and data collection strategies, and analyzing data to understand how it supports data-driven decision making. The project team then will develop and deliver lesson plans through CSC’s existing professional development platform to train additional cohorts of museum staff. The outcome of project activities will be a museum staff that has been equipped with the tools, training, and supports necessary to create a culture that prioritizes evaluation and data-informed decision making, ultimately enabling CSC to provide more enriching experiences for its audience.
