Abstract

Numerous obstacles contribute to the underrepresentation of racial, ethnic, and gender groups in science and technology fields. However, addressing these barriers is complex and multifactorial. As part of their exploration of intersectionality and leadership, seniors in biology investigated different factors that initiate and sustain interest and engagement in STEM fields. They applied this knowledge by re-envisioning classroom activities and resources to align with best practices that encourage the development of STEM identity in underrepresented groups. These activities are being compiled into a resource handbook for Indianapolis-area teachers and will be part of an ongoing service outreach project for biology undergraduates.
