A “shout out” for my favorite science education (ad)venture

When Pittsburgh Voyager began its unique river-based educational programs, I was in academe and was asked to join its Board of Directors.

When I left my “day job” in 1996 to write full-time, it was time for someone else to take my spot on the Board.

But I still have a soft spot for the organization, which now has a new name that captures its spirit of experiential learning.

As RiverQuest, it has grown farther than we could have hoped for in the mid-1990s.

Click here for its latest newsletter, and you’ll see why I am proud to have participated in launching this outstanding educational (ad)venture.
