Teacher Guides

In partnership with Australia Post, we have helped create a teacher guide and classroom activities which explore the annual National Science Week theme.

2023 Innovation: Powering Future Industries

This guide introduces a thorough understanding of renewable resources for a sustainable future from a First Nations perspective and is based on the Australian Geographic DeadlyScience title, ‘Renewable Resources’. Developed in partnership with Australia Post, DeadlyScience and Wingaru Education, this guide is curriculum aligned and strongly features the cross-curriculum property of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.

2022 Glass: More Than Meets the Eye

This guide is based on the Australian Geographic DeadlyScience title, ‘Earth’s Changing Surfaces’. Developed in partnership with Australia Post and DeadlyScience, this guide is curriculum-aligned and each lesson reflects on our nation’s first scientists’ use of natural glass.

Classroom Resources

These resources have been developed to assist in extending Indigenous learning in the classroom. They work as standalone resources, and can also be linked to one of our virtual DeadlyLearner sessions to connect students with one of our STEM legends.

Inclusion & Engagement: DeadlySTEM Guide for Teachers

First Nations people around Australia have practised science for over 65,000 years. They are the first scientists of Australia. The information in this guide is designed to assist classroom teachers to improve engagement and inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. The approaches and strategies in this guide can, at times, be transferred to other subjects and contexts.

Spot the Difference: Classroom Activity


This activity is designed to share and honour knowledge and skills with students. This activity provides students an introduction to genetics, and how genetics can be used to think about ways to solve problems, through scientific processes.
