Deadly Science at high speed!
The Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix was held in Melbourne yesterday, and this year there was a surprising addition to the livery of the McLaren cars (one of which was driven by Australian Daniel Ricciardo). Deadly Science is a charity organisation that provides science books, early reading material, and telescopes to remote Australian Indigenous communities. This F1 season, McLaren sponsor Smartsheet is donating its advertising space on the cars to worthy not-for-profit organisations, and Deadly Science was selected for this race. The work of Deadly Science has previously been recognised with the 2021 Eureka Prize for Innovation in Citizen Science, and the a 2019 CSIRO Indigenous STEM Award. Deadly Science founder Corey Tutt said of the opportunity to have its logo beamed around the world, "It's just a phenomenal gesture and I'm speechless, I can't believe it even happened."
