2021 Poster - All Are Welcome Here? Understanding Visitors' Sense of Belonging in Science and Natural History Museums
This project aims to formally define what a sense of belonging means in the science & natural history museum context as a way to measure inclusivity efforts. We think that most of the experiences that make up a museum visit have a relatively neutral effect on visitor sense of belonging. However, visitors may experience moments that make them feel distinctly positive or negative, and these moments that matter may influence a visitor’s STEM engagement, interest, and/or identity.
This poster was presented at the 2021 NSF AISL Awardee Meeting.
