Suzy Urbaniak stands as a beacon of innovation in STEM education. With her nomination for the 2024 Women In Resources Awards by the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia (CME), Suzy's pioneering efforts in advancing STEM learning, have received well-deserved recognition.

At CoRE, we believe in revolutionising education by seamlessly integrating industry experience, community engagement, and engaging teaching methods. Suzy's leadership has been instrumental in driving this vision forward, shaping the future of STEM education across regional communities.

The CoRE Learning Model, under Suzy's guidance, has transformed traditional classrooms into dynamic hubs of exploration and discovery. Through immersive Project-Based Learning (PBL) initiatives, students engage in real-world challenges, applying scientific principles to solve complex problems. From investigating local ecosystems to simulating geological processes, CoRE students engage with STEM subjects in meaningful and practical ways.

The Gamifying Earth Sciences project exemplifies our commitment to innovative learning. Students embark on interactive journeys through geological wonders and scientific phenomena. Through challenges and simulations, CoRE students not only learn key curriculum concepts but also develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills essential for success in the 21st-century workforce.

The impact of Suzy's innovative initiatives extends far beyond the classroom walls. CoRE's long-standing partnerships with industry leaders such as BHP, Newmont, Ramelius, and Australian Geoscience Council have enriched students' learning experiences through mentorship programs, industry insights, and immersive field trips. These collaborations bridge the gap between education and industry, empowering students with real-world knowledge and skills.
