The Inquiry for Indigenous Science Students (I2S2) program is being 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.

This addresses the Indigenous STEM project aims of increasing the participation and achievement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The design and implementation of the program recognises and acknowledges school structures and processes, with a comprehensive understanding of the differences that exist between primary schools and high schools and the scientific skill set of their teaching staff.

The design and implementation of the program also takes into account the integral and essential role of the teacher in increasing the achievement, engagement and attendance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in science.

Essential and core to the I2S2 program is the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students themselves. The I2S2 program has been designed to address some of the critical factors that can lead to the lack of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in STEM subjects and careers.
