Bristol Dinosaur Project Education Programme Evaluation

The Bristol Dinosaur Project is a research and education programme based round the fossilised remains of the dinosaur Thecondontosaurus which were found in a quarry in the Bristol area.

In 2009, the project received Heritage Lottery funding to develop public engagement and schools’ outreach activities. Under this funding, the project has been running schools’ workshops delivered by the project’s Learning Officer, Ed Drewitt with the assistance of postgraduate students from the University of Bristol School of Earth Sciences.

Our evaluation looked at the success of these workshops through focus groups, debrief sessions, direct observation and teacher feedback questionnaires and made recommendations for future roll-outs of the workshops.
