Abstract: Although recent research has emphasized the importance of understanding science practices and how people teach and learn them, much of this is set within mono-disciplinary classrooms, providing limited vision for how people might learn from one another in the context of an interdisciplinary lab. We present data from participant observation collected over a three-year period in an interdisciplinary scientific research laboratory as a lens into how people can learn science from one another. We depict how the participants used stories as a means to prototype their ideas over time, and how their approach to treating these stories as tentative and contingent supported them to make progress and learn together.
