Impacting the Lives of Pittsburgh Children
Our professional instructors, captains and deckhands of the Pittsburgh Voyager, and a fleet of research vessels make the perfect team for delivering world-class river education programs right here on Pittsburgh’s great rivers.
Pittsburgh Voyager is a Pittsburgh based non-profit science and environmental educational organization offering river-base educational programs for students, teachers, and the community. Pittsburgh Voyager’s multi-faceted programs, which support Pennsylvania’s education standards integrate a classroom curriculum (biology, chemistry, math and physics) with onboard programs. Formal Educational Programs for Students and Teachers are Environmental Science on the Three Rivers; Community River-Ventures; and Boats, Bridges and Water. While school programming is Pittsburgh Voyager’s hallmark, it also provides a host of other programs and services to other segments of the community. These offerings are Teacher Professional Development Workshops, College & University Laboratories, Interpretive Boat Tours, Summer Camps and Private Charters.
Our New Pittsburgh Flagship: A Green Boat!
Pittsburgh Voyager is building one of the most innovative commercial and passenger vessels and educational platforms in the world — a green-engineered boat. A $1 Million grant from the Heinz Endowments and the generous support of many other private and public organizations is making it possible. Constructed in Summer of 2006.
