Education & Outreach

Who We Are

The mission of RiverWorks Discovery® is to educate communities about the commerce, culture, conservation, and careers on the great rivers of America and their watersheds.

RiverWorks Discovery® is an outreach program of the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium and the National Rivers Hall of Fame. Our activities can be presented indoors or outdoors to encourage youth to reconnect with nature while they learn about the fascinating world of rivers. We provide educational materials and resources for both formal and informal educators.

This multi-disciplinary program focuses on math, history, geography and mapping. Curriculum tools

are designed to present river-based learning activities that ask important questions:

  • What is in the river?
  • Where does it go?
  • What is carried on the river barges?
  • How do people work on rivers and what do they do?
  • Why are rivers important?

RiverWorks Discovery® is designed to correlate to state standards while encouraging children to get outside and explore the water that flows through their lives.
