Be inspired as we chat with Corey Tutt who has made it his mission to spread his love of science to remote and regional indigenous communities through sending science books to schools & linking these students to scientists via Skype. This project is completely self-funded and he works hand in hand with local elders in each community. Not only is Corey increasing scientific literacy, he is also helping kids see true pathways to higher education!

Hosted by Ben Newsome from Fizzics EducationAbout Corey Tutt

Corey is a proud Indigenous man from the South Coast(with Kamilaroi heritage),  who is currently working at Sydney University. Corey has a passion for all things science and has been working with Indigenous youth and animals in his spare time. 

Corey has worked at Roo gully WA, Shoalhaven zoo as an Alpaca shearer as well as with the RSPCA and Animal Welfare League, before deciding to continue his studies. When he started work at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, his passion for science developed further. He started to teach himself genetics, starting with primary school level and eventually working up to higher level genetics. When he moved to the University of Sydney in 2016 and his first point of call was to find AIME, the very group that mentored him as a teenager. Today is Corey learning more about his culture and is looking to develop pathways to science within the university for indigenous students by creating an indigenous science committee and podcast to be released in July 2019. Outside of the university, he is spreading the word of about science by helping indigenous people find science in remote areas. Using his connections within the animal industry, he is also to find young indigenous people work.

Corey hopes to develop and collaborate these programs and ideas to a spread to other remote communities and create the pathways to science moment to encourage more indigenous people to pursue science and to work with animals. For the past 6 months, Corey has been sending books to 48 remote schools from all around Australia to get people excited by science he has also created the virtual classroom bringing scientists to the bush via Skype. About the FizzicsEd Podcast

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
