On-Site at Quantum Victoria

Students explore caring for 'land and country' through traditional resource collection and sustainable thinking. They explore the impacts of first contact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and land following the arrival of Europeans and their animals. Students investigate the impact this has had on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples' ability to continue their traditional practices and how they were able to endure, adapt and survive when faced with colonial settlement. Aboriginal culture has continued to exist and thrive as a unique and proud heritage.

We acknowledge the contributions and guidance provided by Aunty Zeta Thomson, Yorta Yorta/Wurundjeri Aboriginal Elder, who has a lifetime involvement in Aboriginal community and Culture, to this program. The powerful stories and knowledge she has shared with us have guided us in creating an authentic and respectful program that highlights the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics of Australia's First nations People as well as the culture and histories of the Aboriginal communities of Victoria.

An extension module complementing the onsite program and develops students’ numeracy skills is available for completion upon your return back to school. This module consists of a student workbook and teacher resource book with solutions.
