Abstract: A museum genetics lab, following an apprenticeship model, scaffolds volunteers’ participation in laboratory activities through interactions with other lab members. As volunteers interact and complete activities in the lab they begin to connect prior memories and experiences to their present experiences and imagined future experiences. Using a sociocultural analytic framework for trajectories of identification (Author, 2010a), we examined (1) how volunteers are scaffolded in their participation in the lab and (2) how their participation directly affects identity and trajectories of identification by analyzing prolepsis, positioning, and agency of participants as they occur in real time and in narrative.
