Whose Banner Are We Waving? Exploring STEM Partnerships for Marginalized Urban Youth
Ridgeway, Monica L.; Yerrick, Randy K.
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v13 n1 p59-84 Mar 2018
This case study examines after school programming in citizen science from the perspective of Critical Race Theory. During the course of enacting community outreach projects this data was used to examine the positioning of experts, student, and teachers within the program. This study explores the role of race and ethnicity, and the ways in which marginalization can manifest itself with black urban youth and teachers. Implications for partner selection and training are addressed.
