It’s alive! Survey of science engagement activities is now online

We’re now ready to take the snapshot of Australia’s science engagement activities so say cheese! The national survey is live online. If you are involved in science engagement activities fill out the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/scienceengageaudit. It closes 30 June 2012.

The survey is designed to capture a lot of information and poses some challenging questions. Don’t postpone giving us your answers. Please start filling out the survey now. The survey allows you to enter multiple science engagement activities if you are especially active in the area.

Once you complete the survey you can be in the draw to win a prize, but the best prize will be if we can help make science communication and engagement more effective.

I posted the project information on 30 April. If you missed it go to http://www.asc.asn.au/blog/2012/04/30/the-biggest-snapshot-of-science-engagement-in-australia/. This project is a great opportunity for the ASC to contribute to improving how we engage the public with science in Australia.

This Inspiring Australia initiative is supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research & Tertiary Education in partnership with Econnect, Bridge8, ASC and UWA.

Surveyingly yours,
Jesse Shore
National President
