Hite, Rebecca; Jones, M. Gail; Andre, Tom; Childers, Gina; Corin, Elysa – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Despite policy changes and targeted outreach, issues of under-representation persist for women and minorities in science fields. Previous research has explored extrinsic motivational factors for underrepresented groups in both formal educational settings. However, little research has investigated intrinsic motivation within informal educational…

Dentzau, Michael W. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In their paper Ramos de Robles, Gariby-Chávez and Curiel-Ballesteros offer that indigenous traditional knowledge (IK) concerning edible wild plants in Mexico, part of the historic culture, is fading through successive generations. Furthermore, they argue that a return to this knowledge which proved valuable for many ancestors is desperately needed…

Martínez-Álvarez, Patricia – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Science education should help children acquire sophisticated understandings about science, how it is done, and how they can be scientists. Consequently, there is a need to explore how minoritized children's linguistic and cultural resources can be employed in the science classroom. This study examined how perceptions of science teaching and…

Avraamidou, Lucy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this multiple case study was to uncover a series of critical events and experiences related to the formation of the science identities of four beginning elementary female teachers, through a life-history approach and a conceptualization of teacher identity as "lived experience." Grounded within the theoretical framework of…

Le, Paul T.; Matias, Cheryl E. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
The hope for multicultural, culturally competent, and diverse perspectives in science education falls short if theoretical considerations of whiteness are not entertained. Since whiteness is characterized as a hegemonic racial dominance that has become so natural it is almost invisible, this paper identifies how whiteness operates in science…

Glass, Rory – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This commentary explores some of the salient aspects of Lucy Avraamidou's study, specifically those of identity and the origins of those characteristics.

Ivarsson, Jenny – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this forum article, I reflect on the findings by Eva Silfver in "Gender performance in an out of school science context." Silfver has studied a class of 14-15-year-old students during a visit to a science center. The students are supposed to write a computer program that will steer a Lego car. In their activities, Silfver identifies…
