Use Australia’s only Science program
featuring explicit teaching.

Get your students to fall
in love with knowledge. 

Oz-e-Science engages the natural curiosity of students and develops their love of science. We give students a sense of wonder about the universe by using a teaching approach and curriculum that strikes a more effective proportional balance between teacher-directed instruction and inquiry learning strategies.

The content is designed to get students to understand the power and potential of scientific endeavour, and to make science a part of each student’s life journey

The Oz-e-Science teaching approach draws on research that analyses teaching methods around the world and uses the most effective.
This research includes McKinsey & Company analysis of the 2015 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) which found that the best performing education systems in the world use a blend of teacher-directed and inquiry-based instruction. The optimum balance preferences teacher-directed instruction whilst providing opportunities for inquiry learning.
We also draw on the internationally acclaimed research of Professor John Hattie, on how different instructional strategies work better at different phases of learning. Oz-e-Science design identifies the three phases and gets the timing right for using different teaching strategies.

Develop confidence to teach science.

Teaching science can be difficult, especially for generalist primary school teachers. Oz-e-Science provides all the background information and content teachers need, as well as teaching guides and multimedia presentations to explicitly teach the lessons.
Oz-e-Science also comes with a professional learning module for teachers and teaching assistants. This online module explores the instructional strategies, resources, unit components, inquiry skills and more, so that your class can get the most out of the program.

Our story

Good to Great Schools Australia exists so that every Australian child, no matter what their background is, 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.
