FETTU Evaluation Data

An evaluation of FETTU was made possible by NASA funds. These data are from a small fraction of the people who visited FETTU locations worldwide and are limited in its scope (approximately $10,000 for evaluation organization, protocol creation and data analysis, with data collection completed by volunteers). However, given the ultimate size of the project, along with the model used to employ it, these data do represent some insight into the potential impact that this type of public science may have.

The results show that even brief, casual encounters with science in these public, non-traditional settings can have an effect on the public's exposure to science topics. The outcomes outlined in the analysis section also represent the potential for measureable impact that may be assessed and tested with future public science projects.
