Ciencia Viva School is subject to external assessment and evaluation by a team of Researchers from the Centro de Investigação e Estudos de Sociologia do ISCTE–IUL.
The research project follows a mix-methodology with an interconnected range of methods, including field observation, interview and survey. The purpose of this research is two folded. On the one hand, it seeks to provide the basis for continuous reflexive practice and assess the impact of these practices not only at school but also within the local community. On the other hand, the assessment and follow-up are designed to produce relevant information in view of a large scale dissemination of the project outcomes, both at a national and international level.
