NISEP at Lismore High School 2014
Macquarie University’s Indigenous Science Education Program (ISEP) was expanded as part of the LEAP program in 2010 and has continued to reach more students and community members. In 2011 ISEP was awarded an Australian Learning and Teaching Award for Programs that Enhance Learning and in 2012 was successful in receiving an Inspiring Australia grant to expand its programs nationally.
