For the water industry, the national implementation of the Australian Curriculum: Science Foundation to Year 10 (F-10) represented a valuable opportunity to promote student and teacher understanding about key water topics and issues. In response, the Australian Water Association sponsored an education project – the AWA Australian Curriculum Project (ACP) – from 2013 to 2015.
The project began with an analysis of water topics in the Australian Curriculum, an audit of existing curriculum resources with a gap analysis and recommendations for further actions. It focused on the Science, Geography and History subject areas. This report on the role of water in the Australian Curriculum: Science and two similar reports for Geography and History as well as some teacher guides are available below.
