Australia’s First Nations Peoples have the longest continuing culture on Earth, passing on the lessons of land, sea and sky to future scientists through stories, song and dance.

As the 2021 Sydney Science Festival Ambassador, Corey Tutt will deliver a keynote address celebrating the breadth and depth of knowledge of our first scientists – from bush medicine, astronomy, engineering and forensic science to chemistry, land management and ecology. With knowledge acquired through Community consultation, he will introduce the audience to boundary-pushing scientists, both past and present.

Hear, too, how Tutt continues this tradition with his work at Australia’s leading science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) program, Deadly Science – an initiative he founded in 2018.

This event is presented by Powerhouse Museum in partnership with the City of Parramatta as part of Science at the Riverside 2021.


Corey Tutt is the founder and chief executive of Deadly Science, a charity that provides science resources, mentoring and training to remote and regional schools across Australia with a focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The passionate STEM champion is also a member of Science & Technology Australia’s . In 2020, Tutt was named NSW Young Australian of the Year and a Human Rights Hero by the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Presented by the Powerhouse Museum
