Abstract: This paper reinterprets the notion of the "competent outsider" (Feinstein, 2010) through the lens of authenticity. We present a three-pronged conceptual framework about authenticity: to the domain, to the world, and to students. Data from Project COOL and the Knowledge In Action Project raise questions about power and ownership of "authentic" science. Findings suggest considering these multiple aspects of authenticity can help in design and instruction of formal and informal science learning environments.
