  • About I2S2

    Targeting middle-school students in mainstream metropolitan and regional schools, the I2S2 program uses hands-on inquiry-based projects to increase student engagement and achievement in science.

  • Our Team

    The Inquiry for Indigenous Science Students program team are a diverse, unique and passionate group of people who bring their energy and skills to the task of raising the achievement, engagement and attendance levels of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in science.

  • Implementation

    The Inquiry for Indigenous Science Students (I2S2) program will be implemented across Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australian and South Australian schools. Schools that have been chosen to participate so far, have been chosen because of their high percentage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander enrolment.

  • Supporting Resources

    The I2S2 program recognises and acknowledges for Indigenous students to achieve the program goals of increased achievement, engagement and attendance in science, that the classroom teacher is the most essential element in this undertaking.

  • Current Inquiries

    Inquiry for Indigenous Science Students inquiries identify Content Descriptions in the Australian Curriculum which can be related to a traditional context and developed into a hands-on scientific inquiry. Four inquiries have been developed and are currently being implemented into schools across Australia.

  • Future Inquiries

    Six inquiries are currently in development for release in 2017. These inquiries provide more opportunities for teachers to expose and engage their students with science, through an Indigenous contexts across years 5 to 9.
