Anahi Carrera; Thomas Luckie; Emily H. G. Cooperdock – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2024
First-generation college students (FGCS), defined as students whose parents did not earn a baccalaureate degree, encounter distinct obstacles navigating academia. Barriers faced by FGCS, including lack of financial security, lower sense of belonging, and inadequate mentorship, are often compounded by the intersection of other marginalized…

Taormina J. Lepore; Lisa Lundgren; Daniel Lawver – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2024
Field experiences are an important element of paleontological knowledge building. However, there is little information about the effects field experiences have on science stewardship and personal growth in high school learners. This pilot study analyzed the reflections of a group of female and male 9th grade U.S. high school students (N = 72) on…

Rowan C. Martindale; Barbara Sofia Sulbaran Reyes; Sinjini Sinha; North Cooc – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2024
Educational geoscience games have been increasing in popularity because they promote learning through amusement and encourage students to engage with topical material and each other. Here we describe a new board game, "Reef Survivor", and its use as an instructional tool in undergraduate classes. The educational objective is to teach…

Anderson; Chelsie Romulo – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2024
Interdisciplinary environmental and sustainability (IES) programs are different from other fields because they focus on a complex integration of humanities, social, and natural sciences concepts centered on the interactions of coupled human and natural systems. The interdisciplinary nature of IES programs does not lend itself to traditional…

Janina Bistron; Angela Schwering – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2024
School curricula as well as scientific literature emphasize the need of understanding how children navigate with maps. To date, however, there is no empirically validated assessment tool for analyzing navigational map reading competencies that can be used in map-based navigation tasks in the real-world. This paper fills this gap by presenting…

Evelyn Abagayle Boyd; Kelly Best Lazar; Matthew Voigt – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2024
As a response to the increased need for humanization and representation in STEM, a set of open-source, customizable icons was developed using stackable vector graphics to allow participants to design their own research icons. These icons have the potential to both grant research participant's greater agency in their representation and attempt to…

Martin, Keshia; Robertson Evia, Jane; Peterman, Karen; Grimes, Kristin; Medina, Mónica; Brandt, Marilyn – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
This case study shares feedback from program alumni who are from underrepresented groups in STEM and who participated in either an undergraduate internship program or a Bridge to Ph.D. program designed to broaden participation in the marine and environmental sciences. The internship program was hosted by a Historically Black College and University…

Graham, Jasmin; Hodsdon, Gina; Busse, Aly; Crosby, Michael P. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
The aim of this study was to understand the factors that impact the recruitment and retention of scientists that identify as Black, Indigenous or as People of Color (BIPOC). A total of 47 BIPOC participants who are currently working or have worked in the field of marine science were recruited using a non-probability snowball sampling method to…

Woods, Natasha N.; Leggett, Zakiya H.; Miriti, Maria N. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
Ecology and environmental (EE) biology has low representation of Black Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC). Degree completion and career placement in EE often fail due to poor consideration of the intersections among student lived experiences and the academic support, peer community support, mentoring, and leadership development that they…

Todd, Wendy F.; Towne, Chessaly E.; Clarke, Judi Brown – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
Traditional Knowledge (TK) is a qualitative and quantitative living body of knowledge developed locally and regionally across generations over thousands of years. This study aims to show through authentic voice the importance of centering TK systems and cultural needs to provide equitable geoscience education programs. TK can be communicated…

Saha, Sriparna; Tapuke, Sylvia; Kennedy, Ben; Tolbert, Sara; Tapuke, Kelvin; Macfarlane, Angus; Hersey, Shelley; Leonard, Graham; Tupe, Rita; Ngaropo, Pouroto; Milroy, Kiharoa; Smith, Bubs – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
Bicultural research is important for disaster education in Aotearoa NZ. Historically, deficit-based perspectives of Western Science underrepresent Maori knowledge. However, culturally grounded research partnerships have potential to revitalize engagement with Maori by braiding Indigenous Science and Western Science narratives to improve our…

McKinley, C.; Showalter, G. M.; Crofoot, T.; Stone, Kaden – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
The geoscience community has begun to grapple with the whiteness of the community and the harm and erasure of Indigenous communities done by earth and environmental scientists. We have come to understand that to recruit and retain Indigenous students, geoscience education needs to be culturally responsive by explicitly centering Indigenous…

Morales, Annareli; Medina Luna, Lorena; Zietlow, Daniel W.; LeBeau, Jennifer E.; Molina, Maria J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
Effective science communication for a multilingual population requires more than language translation, it also requires being mindful of cultural communication styles. This study tested the impact that communication style has on feelings of inclusion, learning, and engagement in the Earth sciences for Hispanic and Latinx adults. An online survey…

Hensel, Margaret; Bryan, Jovan; McCarthy, Carolyn; McNeal, Karen S.; Norfles, Nicole; Rath, Kenneth; Rooney-Varga, Juliette N. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
Despite clear scientific evidence to support an urgent need to cut greenhouse gas emissions, societal action remains inadequate to meet international climate goals. New approaches in climate change communication are needed to motivate climate action. "World Climate" is an interactive, engaging, and socially rich role-play simulation that…
