Good point Vicki,

Nancy worked with the Inspiring Australia program to develop tools for evaluation.

You can find these at http://inspiringaustralia.net.au/toolkit/evaluation/    There is a heap of useful information here.

Hi Pete and others,

Regarding evaluation of science events ...

Have you tried asking any social scientists working in this space? Nancy Longnecker (now Professor of Science Communication at University of Otago, formerly at UWA) has been working on evaluation for some time now and has a wealth of experience. 

There are a lot of options within social science practice for evaluation, so if you can't get hold of Nancy, I'd strongly recommend talking to a social scientist who can guide you through the problems and pitfalls of various approaches.

Good luck!
