Supporting multiple identities in informal spaces: Examining design choice
written by Brean Prefontaine and Kathleen A. Hinko
Informal physics programs often have the aim of supporting and cultivating physics identities; however, a student is more than just a physicist. Students have multiple identities, including their racial, cultural, and gender identities, which we believe must be supported within their experiences in informal programs. Informal physics programs that intentionally blend physics learning with other areas of interest (art, music, sports, etc.) are supportive of more than a student's physics identity. In this work, we theorize that blended informal physics programs can be examined using both Critical Race Theory and Critical Physics Identity frameworks to understand how program design possibly supports diverse identities. To demonstrate this hypothesis, we analyze an informal physics practitioner's interview about a youth program involving both art and physics. We look at connections between the theoretical constructs from the two frameworks to understand how informal spaces can be designed to support multiple identities.
