Abstract: An ethnographic study of community scientist volunteers in a museum-embedded genetics lab clarifies how participants are afforded or constrained in opportunities to learn scientific practices through an apprenticeship-model program. Guided participation in the lab results in participatory appropriation of scientific practices by volunteers. Community scientists enter as newcomers, then gain experience through opportunities to observe and engage in a range of scientific practices associated with studies on genetics of taste and everyday lab support tasks.
