Science, Technology & Engineering

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are responsible for many amazing inventions and innovations in all areas of science, technology and engineering.

Often the knowledge and achievements of Aboriginal civilisation are not recognised but there is so much for us to be proud of and learn about. We hope that more Koorie kids will become our deadly scientists of the future.

  • Engineering

    Engineering is the area of science and technology focused on the design, construction and use of engines, machines and structures.
  • Environmental Science

    Our people have lived on this land since time immemorial. Over thousands of years we have observed and the learnt the ways of our environment and we hold a deep understanding and respect for Country as a result.
  • Tools & Technology

    Before colonisation, our people invented many tools, pieces of equipment and technology to use in everyday life.
