Association Paris-Montagne & Society for Out of Frame Education - EVO

Their Initial Action Plan:

Both organizations wish to expand their delivery models to a wider scale. This is already being done nationwide with the Science Académie program. We believe that fostering such a partnership would allow each other to consider other ways of delivering our own activities. For the past 4 years, Paris-Montagne have been in touch on short timescale project and now wish to pass to it to a further level and establish a sustainable cooperation, even after Catalyst ends. We wish to explore how through the training (and evaluation) of the actors of science communication, we can improve the effectiveness of our programs. There’s already non-formal collaboration between our organizations, and few high school students from France already attend S3 in Visnjan in last few years. Whit this project we would like to continue with the exchange of people (participants and mentors according to the budget allocated) and strength our collaboration in the future.

Intended results are:

  1. The mutual learning end exchanging educational and science communication techniques. Exchange experience about techniques for evaluation of our programs.
  2. Training sessions with a focus on science in society issues. These sessions would be delivered by a member of staff and/or volunteer from Paris-Montagne and EVO members who organized S3 in Visnjan.
  3. Reinforcement of the expertise and gaining knowledge from each other.
  4. Practical interaction in each organization activities with reinforcing the existing links between both organizations that could later foster a sustainable partnership.
  5. Creation of a small handbook for different types of delivering activities.
