This paper describes a set of principles found within existing indigenous community-based science programs, identified as possible contributors to the success of indigenous students in science education. The examination of what makes these types of programs successful is an area of research that is yet to be thoroughly explored. These principles could support indigenous communities to develop, examine and enhance community-based science programs that could benefit all involved.
