How can you save the koala?
Inspire your Students
Project based learning program designed to inspire, motivate and educate primary and secondary school children to actively participate and create change to reverse the decline in koala populations using design thinking and advocacy.
Koala Smart is free for all Primary & Secondary Schools and supports Teachers and Students to develop initiatives that can be applied in your own community.
Action in your Curriculum
With a project based learning program including lesson plans and activities written by one of Australia’s leading curriculum designers, Koala Smart connects your classroom to a real and immediate need in our natural environment…in our community.
Koala Smart can be applied to any school or any class. You chose how to apply the classroom-ready content depending on what best suits your needs, your school’s size, its programmes and resources.
Access to Resources & Experts
Access our up-to-date and factual resources from the experts, including presentations, exclusive videos, interviews, case studies and research. ALL in one location and classroom-ready.
Koala Smart can provide access to Critical Friends. That is, someone who could mentor your students and guide their concept to a conclusion which gives it the best chance of achieving maximum potential and being applied in your community. (Critical Friends may include National Park Rangers, Environmental professionals or volunteers, Ecologists or technology professionals)
See Your Ideas Applied in the Real World
All projects are evaluated for further development. Successful, practical ideas will be offered resources to take them a step closer towards real-world application, with assistance from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry & Environment, the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital and Port Macquarie – Tacking Point Lions Club.
