Scientific identity is the characteristic of an individual that allows one to think following common scientific principles. This project attempted to implement a curriculum based on interactive, hands-on activities to improve scientific identity. Since these activities allowed students to interact with each other, our team expected to positively impact their scientific identity. To assess self-identity, this project attempted to show how sixth grade students perceive science after working through the activities. Through evaluation questions and additional surveys handed out at the end of the activities, we were able to assess student self-identity. The team concluded that through the activities performed in this project, the students were able to maintain a high level of identity.
