Connect with learners. Edu program evaluation improves education and shows funders the value of their investment.
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education programs provide important learning for preschoolers to seniors living in a technical world. Edu specializes in evaluating and advising on Informal STEM Education – learning outside schools through museums, technology, and media.
Edu conducts rigorous and thoughtful evaluation studies based on measurable learning outcomes. We use qualitative and quantitative and mixed methods. Edu offers focus groups, surveys, interviews, observation, statistical analysis, and document reviews to gather and report data.
