ABSTRAKT

This study explores a science outreach program that serves to broaden graduate education for a group of underrepresented STEM graduate students interested in careers in science education and outreach. Through interviews with 24 former and current outreach participants, we examine the graduate experiences and career paths of these students and their formation of science identities that challenged the dominant discourses and values within their departments. This study raises issues that suggest why women and minorities may be underrepresented in academic research and overrepresented in outreach and education.
