Inspiring students through discovery.

Our missions is to equip educators to provide exceptional learning experiences for future ready students.

Creativity

Creativity supports young people to become problem finders and solvers, innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders. Creativity allows us to design the future and imagine ways to combine old with new.

Collaboration

We often learn better, and achieve more, when we work together. Collaboration helps young people develop interpersonal and communication skills, while fostering a sense of belonging and self-worth.

Curiosity

Education should drive the impulse to learn. Curiosity stimulates out interest and our design to actively seeks answers. Curiosity makes learning meaningful and opens up new possibilities.

Cool Australia is far the best resource I have used as a teacher. I have used many websites to aid my teaching but Cool Australia is so easy to use, very useful…I have encouraged all the staff to use the website in their planning. Keep it happening!"

Our History

Cool Australia was launched by Jason Kimberley, our Founder and Managing Director, following an expedition to Antarctica in 2005.  He returned invigorated and armed with a renewed appreciation of the impacts of human activity and the responsibility we all have to invest in our life support system – our natural world.

Jason identified the need to provide our current and future generations with relevant and engaging information about the three pillars of sustainability: social, economic and environmental. Our education system was identified as the most important and effective medium for connecting real world education with kids.

In August 2008, Cool Australia opened for learning.

Cool Australia values creativity because education should provide opportunities for young people to use their hands, minds and hearts.
