Emerging STEM Identities

Video-Based Learning Module

As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

  • What are Mariah and the students doing and saying that is real world, relevant learning that would help them view themselves as a STEM contributor? (Watch and listen 1:40 – 2:21)
  • Why would a model like this be important when developing a STEM identity? What are the different parts of this type of model? (Listen at 2:40 – 3:17)
  • When Mariah is talking about her role in the program, what about that is key to her future in STEM? (Listen at 4:04 – 4:45)

Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw.

  • What can you take away from this video about developing a STEM identity in your youth at your program?
  • What was Mariah’s attitude about science? How did her attitude influence those around her?
  • For you, what is the most challenging part about giving youth control in STEM learning?
