Tender Opportunity: Catalyst Science Discovery Centre

From Catalyst:

We are looking to engage an experienced, innovative evaluator to work with us on a major project funded by the Wellcome Trust and BEIS.

Background to Catalyst:

Founded as a celebration of the global chemical industry starting in the area, Catalyst is a small independent charity attracting visitors through a clear focus on science. We offer a wide range of STEM activities for all ages, including school workshops, family events, Science Clubs, lectures and sleepovers in the Observatory, with our interactive gallery, Scientrific, being one of the main attractions. Located in one of the most deprived boroughs in the country (27th: IMD 2015), Catalyst is embedded in the local economy, with regular visitors and programmes aimed at encouraging new groups. Critical sponsorship from local science industries enables Catalyst to offer occasional free/subsidised visits to groups of children who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience the excitement of science.

Catalyst has developed a Vision for the future aimed at completely rejuvenating the site. Inspiring Science Fund funding has provided the impetus to accelerate the step change we seek, bolstering existing audiences and establish Catalyst as the destination jewel in the crown of the North West.

The Inspiring Science Fund Project:

Catalyst is on the cusp of a dramatic cultural change. We are in receipt of a grant of £754,000 from the Wellcome Trust and BEIS’s Inspiring Science Fund to deliver a complete refresh of our science offer. This funding will be matched in order to deliver a £1million+ scheme.

We have a vision to enhance the social value of the centre and use informal science learning to attract and meet the needs of our underserved and under-represented target audiences;

  • Those experiencing mental health difficulties through ground-breaking research and partnerships with Liverpool John Moores University and mental health charity MIND.
  • Adults who are isolated, who have physical or learning difficulties, or who have dementia.
  • Schoolchildren from the 10 most disadvantaged schools in the Borough; to inspire a generation of scientists who feel that Catalyst is their centre.

This is the start of our journey to become a true community facility, supported by staff, volunteers, Trustees and important local stakeholders. Based in one of the nation’s most deprived boroughs, a new community outreach post will promote and co-ordinate community engagement. Catalyst’s Community Focus Groups are leading the re-design process to ensure the infrastructure solution to deliver our ambition is exceptional:

  • Multi-purpose performance “space” in our renovated Theatre, facilitating public “whizz-bang” science shows, community groups’ meetings and STEAM performances.
  • Scientifically literate, hands-on gallery for intergenerational learning; exhibits designed as platforms of discovery where visitors can engage with phenomena in an open-ended way.
  • Renewed Education Studios for inspirational workshops.
  • “Wow” entrance/café/ shop space that allows free public access to taster exhibits; a destination for conferences, community events, pop-up exhibitions or just a coffee.

The Brief:

We are looking for a highly experienced evaluator to undertake an ongoing and comprehensive evaluation of our Inspiring Science Fund scheme. The evaluator will be involved throughout the delivery and completion of the scheme to August 2020. Creative or innovative methodological approaches that help empower beneficiaries and disseminate learning to drive cultural change are welcomed alongside traditional approaches.

Budget:

  • Project fee of up to £20,000 including VAT
  • Reasonable additional expenses (e.g. travel) to be negotiated at contract stage
  • Additional budget may be available for dissemination and/or innovative evaluation methods
