WG3 “Informal education” meeting description and evaluation scores;

Join us in Porto to focus  on identifying best practices in science exhibits on evolution as well as effective messages to promote scientific literacy in evolution

We will meet in Porto to discuss the following:

  3. Initial ideas for a workshop that will explore assessment strategies to evaluate evolution exhibits (in collaboration with WG1) .
