National Network Interaction Survey Report – 2013

In Spring of 2013, the national evaluation team conducted a survey of the four founding nodes (Gateway Cave -St Louis, Open Minds Cafe – North Carolina, Science Discovery Cafe – Colorado and Florida Teen SciCafe – Florida) to attempt to measure the levels of interaction among the nodes and with the Network Resource Center. 2-4 people at each node completed the survey. It shows varying levels of communication, cooperation and collaboration. In the future, we will be broadening this survey to all of our nodes to better understand the degree to which we are functioning as a network and as a community of practice.
