Throughout Polli:Nation, researchers at the University of Stirling will be carrying out a project to evaluate and research the educational effects and outcomes of the project.  There will be two main elements to this evaluation. The first will be a survey of schools at the start and end of the project.

Alongside this, doctoral student Andy Ruck (see image), under the supervision of Dr. Greg Mannion, will be visiting  a selection of participating schools where his main focus will be to consider the learning processes and impacts on young people.  In particular, he is interested in the manner in which Polli:Nation is experienced as an effective form of environmental education.

Please watch this space for further information.
