Founder and CoRE Lead

BSc (Hons) Geology Dip.Ed Secondary MAIG

Sharing with our students the love of the Earth, the importance of it and of resources which sustain our lives – by reading rocks, we understand how our Earth evolved and use the evidence to protect us into the future.  
In #therealclassroom students tune into the Earth, their curiosity is ignited and lifelong learning begins.  Awaken the scientist in kids, move them onto deeper thinking and learning in contextually-set, authentic, relevant and meaningful environments and they will apply this knowledge and skills turning situations into solutions:  Hands-on Science, Hands-on Engineering – this is real STEM Learning.

Business Development Officer

Product Management, Dip Business/CoRE Alumni

As a student of the CoRE program I know the massive benefits it has given me to get ahead in life. 

I want to see as many students as possible to receive the same opportunities as I had in school.


Jacobi Herringer

Executive Partnerships Officer

Growing up in Northern Canada, I became a fierce advocate for equal opportunities in education, which meant that teaming up with the not-for-profit CoRE Learning Foundation was important to me.


I joined the team to help offer exceptional STEM education and industry opportunities to regional and remote teachers and students in WA Today, I use my stakeholder engagement knowledge, fundraising, and sales experience to help solidify the CoRE Learning Model as a benchmark for hands-on learning in every classroom around Australia. 


Let me know if this version of my profile pic is any better. (shamelessly I don't have any good quality photos of myself).


Emily Farr

CoRE alumni/Geology Student

As a former CoRE student, I understand the impact that the CoRE program has. 


The CoRE program provides a diversity of students with equal opportunities, in an environment where everyone can express who they truly are, feel valued and build on their confidence as an individual. This influence shapes the students personality and results in students flourishing. 


As students are the upstream of STEM, it’s important to have a lasting impact on as many students to path a prosperous future for the industry and I believe CoRE is leading the way in achieving this.
