Research and Development on Understanding STEM Identity Using Live Cultural E...

NSF Awards: 1612719

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Adult learners, Informal / multi-age

This project explores how people with low to no affinity to STEM can be introduced to STEM ideas in ways that are appropriate for their cultural identity. It uses the Guerilla Science model to mix science with art, music and play, producing live events, games, hands-on workshops, and interactive theater productions that inspire wonder and excitement - both important elements for engagement.

The aim of this project is to formally study and improve upon the practices that integrate STEM with creative practices and embed them into unconventional learning environments, like cultural festivals.  The goal is to determine outcomes based on three theoretical frameworks, the concept of follow up activity and subsequent reinforcing experiences.

Project deliverables include a how-to guide on expanding STEM audiences, targeted at cultural institutions who want to incorporate science content into their activities, and for ISL institutions who want to integrate their activities into cultural settings.
