Celeste Carnegie

Tech innovator

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Celeste is a Birri Gubba, South Sea Islander woman from Queensland who runs workshops for young Indigenous Australians connecting technology and culture.

“Indigenous people have been innovating for 60,000 years. We’re problem-solvers, and we had sophisticated systems that we employed to survive on this continent. So now it’s just different tools,” she says.

Celeste is working on a project with University of Sydney’s Australian Centre for Field Robotics on the connections between the traditional Indigenous environmental sciences and emerging technologies.

“Being able to create a program where young people will code robots while they learn about Aboriginal culture is the best.”
