Welcome to RiverWatch Science Floats – Your Classroom On The River!

The best way to study a river is by taking your science classes on a float trip aboard our large inflated rafts fully-equipped as floating laboratories! Our award-winning education programs align DIRECTLY with the curriculum and have been a go-to resource for Alberta secondary science classes since 1995. Check out our junior high, and high school course and unit curriculum links HEREWith an amazing focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), students explore their local river ecosystem aboard rafts equipped as mobile water quality laboratories. A day of rafting takes the student classroom into the real world to experience an interesting mix of ecology, wildlife, history, geology, engineering, technology, industry, water quality monitoring and data collection. Our programs showcase science in ways students have never seen before, creating an experience they’ll never forget! Safety and participant comfort is the priority in all our programs. Check out all our safety protocols HERE. Over the years, more than 150,000 students have adventured out with us to become young scientists for the day. 

Thank you to our school science float sponsors EPCOR, The City of Calgary, Nova, and our other partners listed below for making these experiences possible for students and local schools!
