Building empathy through outdoor education
Student Showcase of Research & Engagement Spring 2019
This presentation illustrates the rationale applied in developing the PEMI Youth Center Squam Lake Science Program Feedback Survey (PYCSP Feedback Survey). Existing literature was juxtaposed against the Science Program's curriculum to produce a research-backed tool. The PYCSP Feedback Survey consists of an individual or parent form. The assessment consists of 18 items, soliciting feedback and measuring program efficacy. In accordance with best practices derived from literature, its administration to all PYC participants is intended to bookend school semesters. Based off what existing literature suggests, we predict the PYCSP Feedback Survey will effectively measure the efficacy of the PYC Science Program.
