National courier, Australia Post, has partnered with DeadlyScience, a not-for-profit Indigenous charity.
Australia Post will leverage its network to deliver Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) books and materials to First Nations communities across the country.
DeadlyScience, founded in 2018 by Corey Tutt, celebrates Australia’s first scientists, First Nations people – and works to empower Indigenous students in schools today to discover STEM pathways through innovative programs.
Australia Post EGM Community, Sustainability and Stakeholder Engagement, Tanny Mangos, said the new partnership with DeadlyScience builds on the company’s literacy commitment and focus in Indigenous communities.
“Our partnership with DeadlyScience includes delivering science books and education materials to over 390 schools across Australia and supporting a National Science Week campaign in August,” he said.
The partnership complements Australia Post’s work with the Indigenous Literacy Foundation where it has helped deliver more than 280,000 books to children in 325 remote Indigenous Communities since 2020.
