The Australian Academy of Science is building a strong foundation in STEM teaching and learning. We offer three teacher trialled programs with proven outcomes spanning science and mathematics, Foundation to Year 10. Our comprehensively planned programs are grounded in research and showcase exemplary inquiry practices which help teachers maximise the difference they make in the classroom.
Primary Connections: Linking science with literacy is an innovative approach to teaching and learning, which has been found to enhance primary school teachers’ confidence and competence for teaching science.

The curriculum units are mapped to the Australian Curriculum and are available free to all Australian students and teachers. Science by Doing is supported by award-winning professional learning modules and a research-based professional learning approach.
reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry is a rigorous and engaging mathematics program that focuses on purposeful, inclusive and challenging tasks for students from Foundation to Year 10. reSolve creates resources for classroom use and professional learning, available free to all Australian teachers. More than 300 reSolve Champions across Australia have been trained in the reSolve approach and are available to work with local teachers to promote a spirit of inquiry in school mathematics.
