The Healing the Swan project integrated science lessons into real-life concerns about the Swan River as well as into other learning areas in the curriculum. This project was a component of a broader investigation entitled SOS: Science of Sustainability, previously reported in SCIOS (Lewis, Baudains and Mansfield 2008). SOS explored student engagement and learning in science and other learning areas. SOS was supported by an Australian Schools lnnovation in Science, Technology and Mathematics (ASISTM) grant which involved six Western Australian schools (independent and government, primary and secondary) working together collaboratively, in partnership with tertiary institutions, government and non-government organisations.
