Career Exploration

RiverWorks Discovery offers the opportunity to explore career options through our Who Works the Rivers program (WWR). This program touches on the Careers in Maritime Commerce, Culture, and Conservation and can be easily adapted to meet state and district standards. This program is targeted to supplement High School STEM programs, Community College Career programs, and College students.

RWD can facilitate a local event at many sites along the Ohio, Arkansas, and Mississippi Rivers. These events can be organized as a daylong fieldtrip that includes hands-on activities, including water sampling and learning from local experts in the government and private industry. Or, these events can be organized as a Virtual Learning event with a panel of experts in these topics.

Upcoming programs are already scheduled for the following:

  • December 7  |  St. Louis, MO/Alton, IL
  • February 2022 (TBA)  |  Vicksburg, MS
