About this project

Explore Your Universe Phase 4 is ASDC’s national strategic STEM programme in partnership with the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC). 

Why community engagement?

This section looks at why we might use science to engage, who 'owns' this science and what challenges come with a science agenda. 

Working in partnership

Partnerships are vital to good community based informal science learning or engagement. 

Evaluation in practice

Good evaluation helps us do our jobs better, more impactfully and can be embedded at all stages. 

Strategies for engagement

Who to engage, when to engage them and how to engage them meaningfully. 

Catalysing Organisational Change

When partners feel that working with an organisation can lead to valuable outcomes, it helps embed these activities beyond the duration of a particular programme. 

Case studies

A range of case studies looking at inclusive engagement in practice from a range of perspectives.
