Thumbs up Corey!n=52
In this episode, Tom interviews rising star Corey Potter-Tutt. We talked a lot about indigenous Science, brain food, animals and their superpowers and Camelids!
A great episode where I feel like I learnt a lot from a different perspective on science communication. I was totally impressed at the work that Corey is doing, sending Science books to Indigenous schools. It's clear that Corey has many superpowers!
Corey answered Ivy's question about what you'd tell your past self and asked his own here:
How do you see yourself in the science world and how do you communicate what you do?You can Find Corey on twitter here @Corey_Potter as well as on instagram @cdawg201826 and facebook here. Corey also spends a lot of time with AIME (Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience) at the University of Sydney. It's worth a look.
Call to action:
Alpacas I've linked to the Wikipedia page. If you want to learn about them IRL, go to the Aplaca Barn in Berrima
A special mention also goes to the book about animals from Corey's Childhood, Australian Reptiles in Colour by Harold Cogger. This was a great story that he told in the episode
To support the podcast we've decided to sell some podcast merchandise...With a difference.
It takes 2,700 litres of water to make one t-shirt, so instead of making more things, we've re-used them. Our items are bought in an op-shop, then we write "STEMpunk" on it with a permanent marker.
Due to the fact that these items are second hand, they will not be "perfect" but they certainly are unique!
Head over to our STEMpunkPod Etsy store to get our merchandise.
