The optimum balance preferences teacher-directed instruction while providing opportunities for inquiry learning.

Our story

Good to Great Schools Australia exists so that every Australian child, no matter their background, attends a school that develops their potential.

We developed Oz-e-science for teachers, so that they have a complete toolkit for effective and explicit teaching of science. We developed Oz-e-science for students, so they can engage in their local natural environment through scientific inquiry. And so they engage in science at primary schools so they have the opportunity to pursue science through further study.
