Cool Australia has been providing teachers with online materials and tools to inspire students about sustainability for ten years.

A Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation grant will ensure every teacher in Australia will be able to access a one-stop-shop of lesson plans and activities aimed to give students the appropriate knowledge and skill set for a rapidly evolving technological future.

With close to 1,000 learning activities, reaching 1,020,000 students in 2016, Cool Australia offers a range of diverse courses such as sustainability, Aboriginal history and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics). These courses give inspiration to teachers and save hundreds of hours of lesson planning time.

The new project will focus on increasing the personalisation and usefulness of Cool Australia’s website, maximising its impact on schools nationwide by ensuring all teachers have access to this online lesson resource.
