Abstract: In the science classroom, we rarely get the opportunity to directly discuss themes of equity and inclusion. However, when this subject matter is used as the topic of investigation, it offers students a chance to refine their investigative design and data analysis skills and push towards stronger analytical thinking. Here, high school students in an advanced physics class were asked to investigate causes of racial disparities in the physics workforce. I will present the motivation, process, and results of this project and share student work.
