Abstract: Researchers have highlighted how access to various resources in the learning environment can influence a sense of connection to shared activity or practice. We use the lens of “figured worlds” and the framework of “identity resources” to examine the role and characteristics of resources in influencing identity development within an intergenerational program designed to engage families from non-dominant groups in computing. In this paper, we use the context of this family program to study how families accessed and leverage resources to engage in creative computing, or designing, inventing, and expressing with computing. These resources and overlapping figured worlds of family, community, and computing allowed family members to explore new possible selves in the context of computing. This study has implications for how educators and designers provide access to resources for outreach programs that aim to engage non-dominant groups in computing.
