Inquiry for Indigenous Science Students (I2S2) uses hands-on inquiry-based projects in an Indigenous context to increase student engagement and achievement in science.

Over 7600 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and 1154 teachers have been involved in the Inquiry for Indigenous Science Students (I2S2) program since 2016.

I2S2 draws on best practice in inquiry-based science education whilst embedding high-level traditional context to support teachers to implement the Australian Curriculum. The program is designed to show teachers and students how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples created, developed and use high-level science inquiry skills for over 65,000 years.

The program increases teacher skills in science inquiry and cultural considerations to enable them to effectively engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in science. Schools are provided with a full suite of resources and teaching materials.

Teacher Professional Development is delivered online through 4 hours of interactive online learning, supported by I2S2 Coordinators. The online resources have been tailored to each specific year level, with opportunities for teachers to further their learning and engagement through the online space and communities of practice.
