What we do

Seavoss Associates Inc. specializes in projects that contribute to public understanding of science, including:

  • Evaluation of informal science education and public understanding of science programs
  • Design and implementation of public understanding of science programs
  • Education and training in science communication

Seavoss Associates Inc. also operates a small publishing program.

Who we are

Seavoss Associates Inc. is directed by Dr. Bruce V. Lewenstein, professor of science communication at Cornell University and an internationally-known expert in public understanding of science.

Seavoss Associates Inc. recruits other scholars and professionals in science communication with appropriate expertise to work on specific projects, with a goal of providing information of use both to the immediate project and to the wider intellectual community seeking to understand science communication and informal science education.

Who we work with

Seavoss Associates Inc. has been a leader in developing evaluation models for "citizen science" projects. Some clients include:

Other clients have included the National Science Foundation, the World Health Organization, KCET-TV (Los Angeles), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

How we work

Seavoss Associates Inc. works very closely with project staff, in order to design programs that meet client needs. For evaluation projects, we provide informal feedback throughout the project operation, in addition to formal evaluation reports (both formative and summative) at major milestone points in project operation. We believe that evaluation should be an ongoing function of project management, and we provide guidance to project staff so that evaluation can be continuous.

Seavoss strives to design assessments using standard tools, both to allow for comparison among projects and to provide an opportunity for publishing results of evaluations in the scholarly literature. In this way, Seavoss seeks to help the outcomes of individual projects become useful to the broader community of informal science education.
