Indigenous science celebrated in CSIRO finalists for Eureka Prizes
EUREKA – Award finalists announced!
Today we congratulate two CSIRO teams on being named finalists in this year’s Eureka Prizes for their work with Indigenous communities.
The Kakadu NESP Team, led by Land and Water’s Robinson, Cathy (L&W, Dutton Park), has developed an Indigenous-led science project in the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park, bringing together ethical artificial intelligence and modern science with traditional knowledge to solve complex environmental management problems, and care for animal species and habitats.
They are joined by CSIRO’s Indigenous STEM Education Project (ISEP), and The University of Sydney’s Corey Tutt as finalists in the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources Eureka Prize for STEM Inclusion.
The ISEP team grows curiosity and passion for STEM, building career pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students around the country through six different programs for students of all ages.
