Creating a snapshot of science engagement in Australia.
It’s a picture as big as Australia. A flash of light illuminating how people are getting science out to the community. And in 2012 it’s the first time we’ve ever done it. The aim of the national audit is to create a snapshot of all of the diverse science communication activities and programs going on between January 2011 and June 2013.
The main information gathering tool is an on-line survey filled in by those who have developed or delivered some form of science engagement activity. We’ve turned the results into an interactive visual national online database for anyone to explore key aspects of the survey answers. And we are developing a fully searchable database for more in-depth online analysis.
