Abstract: Mentoring programs have been intentionally designed to support Black and Latina girls in pursuing STEAM. Here, we examine how the support roles mentors play in an OST STEAM program relate to younger girls’ imaginings of their own identities. Findings from surveys taken by middle-school girls and mentors indicate that by the end of the program year, girls showed more willingness to imagine themselves in various identities, relating to the support roles mentors most often played.
