New First Nations-led teacher resources out now!

Careers with STEM has published three new First Nations-led teacher resources for Australian and New Zealand (English and te reo Māori) STEM educators

Last year we partnered with some awesome Indigenous organisations, designers, artists and STEM professionals to bring you our first ever Indigenous special issue: packed with role models, Indigenous-first STEM stories, scholarship opportunities and more. 

And this year? We’ve followed it up with Careers with STEM: Indigenous Teacher Resources!

Produced with INDIGI LAB and CORE Education and supported by Google, the curriculum-linked resources allow educators to incorporate First Nations content and careers into contemporary classrooms via the Careers with STEM: Indigenous magazine.

The fully embeddable flip-through digital magazines, use activities and concepts from a First Nations Science perspective and include curriculum-linked concepts and activities that are aligned to a First Nations cultural framework. 

  • Australian version: Students in Years 7-10 for Australian Curriculum: Science and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures cross-curriculum priority
  • Aotearoa: students at Levels 4 and 5 of the New Zealand Curriculum, and Taumata 4 and Taumata 5 in Te Mārautanga o Aotearoa

The Careers with STEM: Indigenous Teacher Resources are available for free download here

Careers with STEM: Indigenous magazine

Careers with STEM: Indigenous, first published in 2021, is the first Indigenous-only STEM career guide. It was launched to inspire young Indigenous students in Australia and New Zealand to pursue STEM courses and careers. You can read the free digital magazine here.

The magazine celebrates the science, technology, engineering and maths experts that bust stereotypes about who works in STEM and what those jobs look like, while providing an Indigenous-first and inclusive viewpoint of STEM.
