Jacaranda Science Quest

For the Victorian Curriculum

Everything you need for the modern science classroom

The brand new editions of Jacaranda Science Quest VC form a comprehensive suite of engaging and innovative resources, tailored to the Victorian Curriculum. They provide a carefully scaffolded and sequenced, inquiry-based approach to learning science, with a focus on building Science Inquiry Skills (SIS).



Build essential Science Inquiry Skills (SIS)

Science Inquiry Skills (SIS) are explicitly embedded throughout the content and questions, and covered in the Science Inquiry SkillBuilders, introduction to science (SIS) topic and new student eWorkbook and Practical investigation eLogbooks – building both students skills and the knowledge to apply those skills.

Endless learning pathways for all abilities

Visible differentiation is provided at every stage of learning from pre-test to reflection – enabling every student to take their own unique path. Teachers can easily tailor lessons and create differentiated assignments using our customisable worksheets and online question banks.

Unrivalled teacher support

teachON offers teachers time-saving support and inspiration, with ready-made lesson plans, practical teaching advice, differentiated work programs, extensive practical and lab support and customisable assessment. With access to the learnON platform, teachers also receive immediate insights into your students’ performance and engagement.

Innovation for the modern classroom

Innovative resources that are pedagogically meaningful and designed to engage students in the study of science. With access to the learnON platform, teachers can spark students’ interest and easily tailor lessons and create custom assignments.
