Equitable and Transformative Pathways into and through STEM for Youth from Un...

NSF Awards: 1647033

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

PIs, project researchers, youth participant co-researchers, and practitioner partners discuss their shared efforts to explore, support, and design for pathways in and through STEM learning and practice out-of-school towards STEM-empowered lives. We discuss how the project seeks to broaden participation & access to high quality STEM experiences for youth from low-income communities and communities of color historically underrepresented in STEM. We also share stories of how our researcher/practitioner partnerships are working to research and design for innovative practices transforming informal science learning for all youth.

The major goal of our project is for practitioners and researchers, working with youth through design-based implementation research, survey and critical ethnography, to develop new understandings of how and under what conditions they participate in ISL over time and across settings, and how they may connect these experiences towards pathways into STEM. The project will result in: 1) New understandings of ISL pathways that are equitable and transformative for youth from historically underrepresented backgrounds; 2) A set of high leverage practices and tools that support equitable and transformative informal science learning pathways (and the agency youth need to make their way through them); and 3) Strengthened and increased professional capacity to broaden participation among youth from historically underrepresented backgrounds in STEM through informal science learning.
