2021 Poster - Guerilla Science: a STEAM-approach towards science outreach that engages culturally interested audiences who might not ordinarily engage in STEM

November 2, 2021 | Public Programs

This poster was presented at the 2021 NSF AISL Awardee Meeting. The Guerilla Science project conducted two studies: one at the Oregon Eclipse Festival, a large multi-day residential music and arts festival, and one during the Figment festival, a cultural and family-oriented free festival on Governor’sIsland (NewYorkCity). We used a multi-method research design: trained data collectors conducted intercept interviews of various length; short written feedback forms were made available post events; and we conducted structured observations of events.We compared Guerilla Science audiences with general visitors to the festivals on a range of characteristics, including their appreciation for, interest in, and prior engagement with science, and their satisfaction with the design of Guerilla Science events.
