This paper reports a three year research and development project on the design of a lesson plan based on an educational research framework for the inclusion of a local indigenous cultural context into chemistry education. The research was intended to foster education for sustainable development (ESD) and to enhance the relevance in chemistry learning by integrating intercultural and multi-perspective scientific worldviews. The development of the learning designs involved different research phases, namely (a) exploring the content and context of indigenous science related to sustainability issues for their use in chemistry education, (b) implementing teaching interventions to identify students’ views towards the topic and the lesson plan, and (c) investigating the students’ ideas and arguments related to the issues in question. In search of effective implementation of learning designs, two lesson plans and corresponding teaching and learning materials were developed. Selected aspects from the implementation are described.
