The teacher provides the context of the school, discussing the use of contemporary teaching and learning spaces and ways of teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). She discusses how the ASMS is able to use the 'fertile question' to teach English in an interdisciplinary science- and mathematics-based context. This is a model of how science is conducted outside of school. The students have a voice and contribute to the construction of the fertile question. The school is looking into ways for students to collect evidence of their capabilities, just as the students are aware that the teachers need to undertake and provide evidence of their own professional learning. The staff learn and innovate together through contributive leadership.
The Australian Science and Mathematics School has a specific focus on science and mathematics education, while at the same time embedding other curriculum areas such as the humanities into that learning. It is located on the Flinders University campus. The teacher is the senior leader of interdisciplinary curriculum.
