Get Involved with River City

Support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the River City Research Project will end this summer (2009). We have completed all the River City training sessions scheduled for the 2008-2009 school year and will not be sending out any more River City CDs.

Please check the Home page of this Web site for information about the future of River City. Thank you for your interest in the River City Research Project.


  • Are you a middle school science teacher* or do you work with middle school science teachers who might be interested in joining the River City Project?
  • Do you have students who believe they just "can't do science"?
  • Are you looking for ways to add 21st century thinking skills into your curriculum?
  • Would you like to engage your students with technologies as sophisticated as those they regularly use outside of school?

*Note: The River City Curriculum targets national middle school science standards, but we are willing to work with interested 5th-12th grade teachers.
