Stewardship: Water Education for Lifelong Leadership
Project SWELL is a school-based science curriculum that teaches children about the importance of the San Diego region's waterways. The impacts of humans on water are explored through a well-balanced, comprehensive, and hands-on water quality and pollution prevention course of study. Project SWELL helps teachers empower students about how to understand and improve the condition of San Diego waterways. Each SWELL unit of study (grades K, 1, 2, 3/4, 5, and 6) consists of 5 or 6 age appropriate, standards-based lessons that build student understanding of San Diego's aquatic environments and emphasize the actions that students can take to improve them.
