|Abstract:||In response to the vast inequities minoritized youth experience in STEM, we investigate how minoritized youth imagine and author pathways towards becoming in STEM. Drawing from social practice theory, identity and mobiliites of learning, we investigate, through critical longitudinal ethnography, how youth hack a pathway in and through STEM as they remix and repurpose tools, practices, relationships and artifact within and across the STEM-related worlds in their lives. We present one case study to articulate how youth engaged in pathhacking identity work to both gain access and transform both the process and outcomes of STEM participation in both informal programs and school science. The process, salient factors and implications of pathhacking identity work are discussed.|
