The Aboriginal Early Childhood Collective


Science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) are ancient knowledge. Because we know that Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the oldest living culture in the world, the sciences, technologies, engineering and maths knowledge and practices are the most developed and sophisticated on this planet. The Aboriginal STEM Suite is a selection of the presentations from The Aboriginal STEM Summit 2020.

The Aboriginal STEM Suite is an inspiring set of online presentations from Aboriginal and non-Indigenous presenters sharing the ways in which they engage with Aboriginal STEM knowledge and approaches in educational and community practice.

The Aboriginal STEM Suite includes 8 presentations and accompanying PDF worksheets with reflective questions, notes and links to relevant resources to support you to bring Aboriginal STEM knowledge and practices into your everyday curriculum.


  • STEM in the classroom and incorporating Bush-tucker – Cathy Gillespie and Kirby Barker
  • Sky Stories and Astronomy – Garry Purchase
  • STEM Based Learning in Early Childhood – Courtney Glazebrook
  • Brains, Robots, Moon Halos and Country: Inspirations from Leading Aboriginal STEM Pedagogies – Dr Red Ruby Scarlet
