42.041 - Innovations in Methods and Approaches to Tracing Youth Pathways Into STEM

Sat, April 29, 10:35am to 12:05pm, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Floor: Meeting Room Level, Room 221 C

Session Type: Structured Poster Session


In light of calls for research that focus upon the experiences of under-represented students as well as that take an ‘ecological perspective’ this poster session focuses specifically upon innovative methods to studying youth pathways into STEM. Authors present research from a range of projects examining youth trajectories: each project not only shares findings but also focuses upon innovative methods of studying or examining youth pathways. Ranging from use of social network analysis to the use of GIS mapping by youth to illustrate their own contexts–these nine posters reveal data on youth trajectories while delving into new approaches to examining and deepening our understandings to provide rich and rigorous data.
