About CoRE

Developed at Kent Street Senior High School, CoRE is a STEM education program that encourages students to explore possibilities by combining science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics to develop novel solutions to real-world problems. CoRE takes students out of the classroom and into the field, where they can apply the theory they’ve learnt in class, as well as have the opportunity to participate in industry events, international field trips, and more.
