Corey Tutt OAM
Founder, Director and CEO, DeadlyScience
Corey Tutt is a proud Kamilaroi man and CEO and founder of DeadlyScience and Young Australian of the Year for NSW 2020. DeadlyScience provides science resources, mentoring and training to over 180 remote and regional schools across Australia with a particular focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. When Corey found out there were remote schools in Australia with hardly any STEM resources he set out to make change.
To date, DeadlyScience has provided over 16,000 culturally appropriate books focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) as well as telescopes, microscopes, Lego and other equipment to spark student interest. Schools involved with DeadlyScience have reported a 25% increase in engagement in STEM and increased attendance.
