“Indigenous science is a way of knowing and a way of life. The power of Indigenous science lies in its ability to make connections and perceive patterns across vast cycles of space and time.” – Marcus Hughes

Celeste Carnegie, Indigenous STEAM program producer at Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences, stands strong on 60,000 years of technological advancement and environmental sciences that shape her exploration into science and technology while sharing the sophistication, richness, and leadership of Australia’s First Peoples within the STEAM space. 

Join her as she discusses her journey through the STEAM space, her experiences and how she navigates a male-dominated industry as a First Nations Millennial woman.

This event is part of the MPavilion STEM program in partnership with Office for Women.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
