PRIME Futures Program

The YuMi Deadly Centre has been selected to deliver the mathematics element of a new project to direct Indigenous students toward a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) career.

The centre’s YuMi Deadly Maths program forms a key part of an Indigenous STEM education project which is managed by CSIRO in partnership with the BHP Billiton Foundation.

The QUT-based program is widely recognised for its kinaesthetic and cultural approach to learning.

The centre’s director, Professor Tom Cooper (pictured) from QUT Faculty of Education said the program had given Indigenous students an edge in mathematics education because it was based on the belief that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can be strong in mathematics.
