Each summer school has a rigorous academic strand provided by local researchers, as well as a cultural and personal development strand. To get an idea of what happens at a summer school, read more about the summer school experience and download our factsheet [pdf · 1mb].
All of the summer schools include tailored cultural activities run by local Indigenous leaders which will help students to engage with local communities and knowledge, and connect more deeply with their own cultural understandings.
Activities like traditional weaving, cooking in a fire pit and ‘bush supermarket’ tours are just a few examples.
Students can provide preferences around which summer school they would most like to attend and we will do our best to accommodate these requests.
Each summer school has two academic providers who focus on specific fields of science, these are listed in the table below. When deciding on preferences students should consider which subject areas they are most interested in, their availability at the time of each summer school, and the location.
