The "Exhibit appraisal and diverse populations: Pilot research about intersectional and science identities in science exhibits" (APPRAISE) project team worked extensively with minoritized youth between the ages of 9 and 17, including youth of color, girls and non-binary youth, and youth with disabilities, to create a research protocol that can:
- Complexify our understandings of youth identity
- Support youth metacognition about their identities and appraisals of museum exhibits
- Provide a scaffolded approach for youth to have conversations with museum professionals that inform exhibit design
The protocol is composed of two workbooks. This is the first workbook which takes youth through a process of describing their identities, including their demographic and science identities; and thinking about how their identities intersect with exhibit design. To facilitate this data collection, the workbook includes a demographic survey, an identity mapping activity, a science identity survey, an identity reflection peer interview, and an exhibit reflection peer interview.
