Two-Way Science

Ngaparrtji Ngaparrtji Two-way Science supports schools to build partnerships with local Aboriginal communities to develop integrated culturally responsive learning programs that connect the Western Australian Curriculum Science to Aboriginal knowledges. Two-way Science provides an opportunity for all students to learn about science from the world’s oldest continuing cultures.

The AAEEWA Chapter has created an early years resource for  educators working with children from 0 -8 yrs to showcase the Noongar Culture of weaving, tracks and glue making. The three video’s are accompanied by a Teachers Guide. 

We want to acknowledge Alton and Rickeeta Walley for their cultural knowledge sharing in the videos and Rita Lusted from Ngaparrtji Ngaparrtji for collaboration for the Teachers Guide with Dr Elaine Lewis & Dr Jennifer Pearson. Thank you Melinda Snowball from SERCUL, for the styling of the Teachers Guide. 

Three Video’s links are provided below and the Teachers Guide is available here to download.
