When children talk to their families, they learn what is special about their culture and histories. They also learn about what their families find interesting and exciting. These interactions shape children’s views about the world, including their place in STEM fields. In Talking Science with Family, we document how families develop and strengthen common identities in relation to STEM fields–what we call “Family-Centric STEM Identity Development”–through their social interactions. The valuable insight uncovered by this work helps to inform the efforts of institutions and organizations with interests in family STEM learning.

The Talking Science with Family project aims to address systemic issues across formal and informal STEM learning settings that challenge or suppress Latine youths’ STEM identity development to promote everyday science talk by leveraging families’ STEM-related habits.
