written by Robert D. Niederriter and Kathleen Hinko
Drawing on the NAS/NRC goals of identity and engagement, we construct a framework for promoting scientific identity through field trips and lab tours. Design of lab tours for the Partnerships for Informal Science Education in the Community (PISEC) program is presented as an example of applying this framework. We evaluate the success of PISEC's redesigned field trips and lab tours based on observations and analysis of students' questions during lab tours. Students' dialogue during lab tours seeks to know what scientists do and who scientists are, aligning with our goals and with the identity framework.
