RiverQuest presents workshops each year to allow teachers to become the explorers. Workshops are designed to further content knowledge and to provide opportunities for practicing teaching strategies within the context of the workshop topic. Partnering agencies help enrich teacher experiences by bringing their own expertise and resources to the table.
