  • The purpose of this report is to provide a mid-way evaluation document. This report serves as a record of project status and a set of recommendations for consideration. It is intended to facilitate reflective and adaptive process so that the BID collaborative can renew the project plan and optimize project success and impact moving forward. Partnerships for Broader Impacts Design (BID) is a three-year collaborative project envisioned to better understand and support higher-education institutions (HEIs) and informal science education organizations (ISEs) develop robust partnerships through collaborative design of education-based Broader Impacts (BI) experiences. Three significant elements (in addition to HEIs and ISEs) were part of the proposed partnership model. They were: 1) “STEM PIs” originally imagined as a rotating position; 2) “learning scientists” with the role of applying the science of learning and science communication to broader impacts design; and 3) “community partners” to ensure the broader impacts design is responsive to the needs of surrounding communities, especially underserved populations. The project builds on the successful Portal to the Public framework, a national public engagement-training program for scientists.
