Abstract: A predominant outreach practice is to provide programs to specific underrepresented groups to increase diversity. However, often times the well-meaning modification involves the identity of participants, but not the content, pace, or environment of the outreach program itself. A plethora of research, from psychology and K–12 STEM education, provides evidenced-based interventions that can increase interest and a sense of belonging for students. I will explain how JINA-CEE uses such research in developing the curriculum and informing other aspects of its nuclear astrophysics outreach programs.
