Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners
CSIRO recognises that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have made and will continue to make extraordinary contributions to Australian culture, economy and science and we aim to promote and support the vision of ‘A science landscape in respectful partnership with Indigenous Australia delivering innovative, sustainable, holistic solutions to meet our greatest national challenges’.
The Deadly in Generation STEM team acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands with whom this project collaborates and their vibrant cultures and knowledge systems. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
About Deadly in Generation STEM
The program is currently in two NSW regions: Kamilaroi Country (Moree) and Dharawal Country (Illawarra), where high-growth industries such as advanced manufacturing, agribusiness, and Information and Communications Technology will generate new STEM jobs over the coming years. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have an ongoing relationship with science and engineering dating back thousands of years.
Deadly in Generation STEM is co-designing the program closely with these communities and ensuring that their knowledge, technologies and process are an integral part of the program.
Each region has unique cultural knowledge, community groups, industry skills needs and local characteristics.
The program takes a community-driven approach to deliver and support activities, drawing connections between Indigenous STEM knowledges and local STEM industries.
Deadly in Generation STEM helps students strengthen connections to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander STEM knowledges, and develops problem-solving and leadership skills.
Students can also connect with local STEM industries and research organisations, helping them gain a deeper awareness of STEM career pathways and opportunities.
There is no cost to participate in Deadly in Generation STEM.
