Meyer, Corlia; Guenther, Lars; Joubert, Marina – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2019
Background: People's perceptions of scientists have repeatedly been investigated using the Draw-a-Scientist Test (DAST). The test is used to identify people's (stereotypical) images of scientists, which might affect attitudes towards science and science-related career choices. Purpose: The current study has two goals. (1) Applying the DAST at a…

Kang, Hosun; Calabrese Barton, Angela; Tan, Edna; Simpkins, Sandra; Rhee, Hyang-yon; Turner, Chandler – Science Education, 2019
This study explores ways to support girls of color in forming their senses of selves in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) during the middle school years. Guided by social practice theory, we analyzed a large data set of survey responses (n = 1,821) collected at five middle schools in low-income communities across four states in the…

Jackson, Matthew C.; Leal, Christina C.; Zambrano, Jeanette; Thoman, Dustin B. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2019
Although interest development is often conceptualized as a process that occurs within an individual, interest can be developed through various social mechanisms. Messages that suggest that one is or is not welcome within a context may serve to bolster or attenuate interest in those contexts. In a sample of first semester freshmen undergraduate…

Pérez-Manzano, Antonio; Almela-Baeza, Javier – Comunicar: Media Education Research Journal, 2018
The current growth in gamification-based applications, and especially in what is known as Digital Game-based Learning (DGBL), is providing new opportunities with considerable educational potential. In the present study, we report on the results of the progress of a project for developing a setting for a gamified website carried out ad hoc,…

Jackson, Whitney – ProQuest LLC, 2018
Tomorrow's STEM workforce consists of today's students. While it is imperative for students to gain a wider perspective of STEM careers, there are various ways in which this can be accomplished in the classroom. Classroom STEM exposure, field trip experiences, and opportunities to interview those in STEM occupations have all proven effective but…

Ellis, Tierra Therese – ProQuest LLC, 2018
The declining student interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) remains a national concern. More problematic, Black high school students disproportionately lack access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses, which are essential stepping-stones in the path to STEM careers. This dissertation explores the psychosocial factors…

Gudiño Paredes, Sandra – Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, 2018
This exploratory study aimed to describe the impact of the 'Science in Family project', as a transformative learning model for science teachers trying to improve student's attitudes toward STEM subjects. This study took place in a public elementary school in Monterrey, Mexico, which has been developing this project for more than thirteen years…

Wilkinson, Deborah; Kinouty, Mary – Primary Science, 2018
The "Mary Rose" was King Henry VIII's favourite battleship, which sank in the Battle of the Solent on 19 July 1545. She was raised in 1982 and brought back to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard where she is now housed in a multiaward-winning museum. The purpose-built Stavros Niarchos Foundation Learning Centre includes a teaching laboratory…

Reinhold, Sarah; Holzberger, Doris; Seidel, Tina – Studies in Science Education, 2018
Previous studies have pointed out that schools play a central role in students' orientation towards science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). However, studies use a variety of theoretical foundations in order to define variables and hypothesise relationships between schools and STEM orientation. In order to facilitate the…

Price, Rebecca M.; Kantrowitz-Gordon, Ira; Gordon, Sharona E. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
The postdoctoral period is generally one of low pay, long hours, and uncertainty about future career options. To better understand how postdocs conceive of their present and future goals, we asked researchers about their scientific identities while they were in their postdoctoral appointments. We used discourse analysis to analyze interviews with…

Corwin, Lisa A.; Runyon, Christopher R.; Ghanem, Eman; Sandy, Moriah; Clark, Greg; Palmer, Gregory C.; Reichler, Stuart; Rodenbusch, Stacia E.; Dolan, Erin L. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) provide a promising avenue to attract a larger and more diverse group of students into research careers. CUREs are thought to be distinctive in offering students opportunities to make discoveries, collaborate, engage in iterative work, and develop a sense of ownership of their lab course…

Bennett, Judith; Dunlop, Lynda; Knox, Kerry J.; Reiss, Michael J.; Torrance Jenkins, Rebecca – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
Practical independent research projects (IRPs) are a feature of school science in a number of countries. To assess the impact of IRPs on students, a systematic review of the literature was undertaken. Thirty-nine papers met the review inclusion criteria, reporting on work from twelve countries. The review indicates that IRPs are often associated…

Wayne, Kimberly S. – ProQuest LLC, 2018
The workforce gap remains for women and underrepresented minorities in science technology, engineering, and mathematics careers. There are several program initiatives to help address this gap especially long-term STEM enrichment programs. There is a vast amount of literature on STEM enrichment programs, but limited information on the long-term…

Lynch, Sharon J.; Burton, Erin Peters; Behrend, Tara; House, Ann; Ford, Michael; Spillane, Nancy; Matray, Shari; Han, Edmund; Means, Barbara – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2018
Inclusive STEM high schools (ISHSs) can be viewed as opportunity structures for students underrepresented in STEM. By opportunity structures, we mean an education that provides not only access to high quality STEM curriculum and instruction or "opportunity to learn," but also the capacity to create learning environments where students…

Dorph, Rena; Bathgate, Meghan E.; Schunn, Christian D.; Cannady, Matthew A. – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
This paper proposes three new measures of components STEM career preferences (affinity, certainty, and goal), and then explores which dimensions of "science learning activation" (fascination, values, competency belief, and scientific sensemaking) are predictive of STEM career preferences. Drawn from the ALES14 dataset, a sample of 2938…
