How Video Games Are Inspiring Indigenous Kids To Get Into Maths And Science


Indigenous students in Australia are graduating from school at nearly half the rate (41.5 per cent) of their non-Indigenous peers (81.2 per cent). Australian students’ performance in maths and science has declined over the past 10 years, and Indigenous students are on average 2.5 years of schooling behind the national average in these subjects.

Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) are working to change that, and have brought together 18 Indigenous Year 9 kids from all over the country to develop a video game that will inspire young minds to pursue pathways in science, maths, engineering, technology and innovation.
