Marcellus Matters: EASE - MarcellusByDesign Evaluation Findings Brief
Summary brief describing summative evaluation associated with the MarcellusByDesign component of Marcellus Matters: EASE. Marcellus Matters: Engaging Adults in Science and Energy (EASE) was a program of Penn State University’s Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research (MCOR), in collaboration with other experts across the university. The first year of program activities took place in 2012, and the project continued through September 2016. EASE was a multidisciplinary initiative that provided adults in rural Pennsylvania with opportunities to increase their knowledge of science and energy systems and engage in scientific inquiry and investigation through the lens of natural gas development. MarcellusByDesign was a suite of in-person experiences and online resources intended to help participants identify solutions to community planning challenges arising from local shale gas development.
