Smartsheet gives STEM education a boost with McLaren Racing

Enterprise software platform vendor Smartsheet has teamed up with an Australian non-profit to support remote communities with resources for science, technical, engineering and maths (STEM) education.

Smartsheet is working to raise funds and awareness of the DeadlyScience mission, including via its Sponsor X initiative. To kick off, the logo of Australia-based DeadlyScience replaced Smartsheet’s logo on McLaren race team cars at the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix from 8-10 April.

Mark Mader, chief executive officer of Smartsheet, said that businesses should be anchored in a “greater purpose”.

“We believe in helping create a world where anyone can thrive,” Mader said. “Driving meaningful change requires serious commitment, bold action and a platform that anyone can use to make a difference. That’s why we launched Sponsor X.”

DeadlyScience provides remote communities with STEM resources and mentoring. According to DeadlyScience founder Corey Tutt, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children can be discouraged from pursuing STEM due to the under-resourcing of local schools.

DeadlyScience has since shipped over 20,000 books and STEM resources to about 100 communities. Corey Tutt, founder and CEO of DeadlyScience, said the small non-profit team wants to help children realise their potential.

“It means the world for Smartsheet to donate this sponsorship and believe in the important work we are doing,” Tutt said.

Smartsheet is also donating perpetual Smartsheet software licenses, consultant hours and training to improve teamwork and collaboration. The vendor also created a free nonprofit template set to help run their programmes more cost-effectively.
