Kamilaroi man Corey Tutt, founder of Deadly Science and 2020 NSW Young Australian of the Year looks back at 2020: more science, more schools and new ways to connect with Mob.
Deadly Science gets education materials and tools to where they are needed the most: to remote schools and communities, where there is lack of resources.
By providing the tools such as books, microscopes, telescopes and others, Deadly Science encourages children to study STEM subjects.
Corey Tutt, founder of Deadly Science, says that sometimes the microscopes that Deadly Science provided were the very first ones introduced in the school that received them.
He added that allowing children to experience and observe the world under the lenses of microscope, or the outer space in a telescope sparks their interest and inspires them to enquire and be curious.
“Kids are the bests scientists, and… there are no wrong questions.”
Corey Tutt believes that by providing resources, he would allow young kids to get more interest in studying STEM subjects.
2020 highlighted the need of online presence and it allowed Mr Tutt new ways of connecting with remote schools.
The 2020 NSW Young Australian of the year is not stopping here. In 2021, Corey Tutt is planning to launch a webpage that will allow to connect mentors and mentees and get even more kids motivated and interested in science.
