Intense Outreach: Experiences Shifting University Students’ Identities
written by Brean Prefontaine, Claudia Fracchiolla, Manuel Vasquez, and Kathleen A. Hinko
In addition to research and classes, physics students may choose to participate in informal physics teaching experiences; however, these programs are understudied as part of the physics student experience. We investigate university educators' (UEs) negotiation of physics identity after they participate in an informal program for K-12 students as part of the Science Theatre student group at Michigan State University. We hypothesize that that the UEs' science identity is reshaped by the interactions and experiences they have in these programs, especially an intensive week-long trip to the Upper Peninsula. Pre- and post- interviews were collected with Science Theatre participants who went on the spring break trip. In analyzing this data, we demonstrate the efficacy of using a Community of Practice framework to understand UEs' experiences as they negotiate their memberships in the outreach and scientific communities.
