Join Corey Tutt from Deadly Science, to learn about the knowledge and contributions made by Australia’s first scientists.
Australia’s First Nations Peoples hold the longest continuing culture on Earth; they are the first scientists and engineers, cultivating and passing on knowledge of forensic science, astronomy, land management, ecology, medicine, and beyond. In this webinar, Corey will showcase past and current groundbreaking Indigenous scientists, and show how the tradition is continuing in the Eureka award-winning charity Deadly Science, which he founded in 2018.
Corey Tutt is a proud Kamilaroi man and Young Australian of the Year for NSW 2020. He is the CEO and founder of Deadly Science, which provides science resources, mentoring and training to over a hundred remote and regional schools across Australia with a particular focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. As a board member of Science Technology Australia, Corey is contributing to the development of their first ever Reconciliation Action Plan to further encourage participation and inclusion of First Nations peoples in STEM. Corey’s passion for Indigenous education has also been recognised through various awards including the CSIRO Indigenous STEM Champion 2019; AMP Tomorrow Maker 2019 and ABC Trailblazer 2019, 2020 Eureka prize finalist. In 2020 Corey was named a human rights hero by the Australian human rights commission.
