Dr. Zahra Hazari's physics research highlighted in Science Magazine & Physical Review

Featured in Science Magazine

Hazari and Lock analyzed documentation of the classes of one high school teacher who engaged students in discussions on the underrepresentation of women in physics, along with student and teacher interviews and relevant student work, for possible mechanisms connecting these discussions to an increase in physics identity for female students. They found that the discussions created an opportunity for students’ views of professional and school science to change, which may subsequently enable a shift in physics identity development among female students.
