Suzy Urbaniak


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.

As a geologist, and mum of two, I recognise the amazing value CoRE offers, equipping our kids with skills and knowledge that no other school-based program does, and providing the mining industry with a valuable pipeline for the workforce of the future.

From the first moment I met Suzy Urbaniak I felt confident her different and daring teaching methods would change my children’s education - being a student of CoRE has taught them to collaborate, take opportunities and risks and work hard towards a bright future.

Education is the Future and I strongly believe CoRE will lead the way.


Jett Colletti

"With technology being the foundation of our future, it is necessary for students to learn and lead with it."


Dani Tamati

"First conversations, at an early age on STEAM careers other than ‘the norm’ is critical in keeping our future workforce at forefront of changing times and adaptability. 

Kids exposed to CoRE have positive experiences and memories to cherish, and expand upon when they ultimately choose a career in STEAM.'
