We welcome your students to engage in unique, interactive learning experiences with Rivers of Steel.

Hands-on Programs

Rivers of Steel Education programs offer unique, inquiry-based opportunities for students to discover how southwestern Pennsylvania’s natural resources have shaped our industrial past and cultural heritage—and how our environment today impacts our region’s future.

Blending history and with hands-on STEM exploration, Rivers of Steel’s education programs guide students in understanding the complex nature that industry, innovation, environment and economics play in defining our region’s assets and opportunities.  Additional workshops focus on building critical thinking skills through the use of primary resources and abstract thinking through creative contextualization.
