Welcome to River on the Web!  If you’re a student, teacher, or just a concerned citizen, River on the Web is your source Ohio River information and educational resources! It features all of the best information collected from educational workshops, water monitoring programs and other initiatives developed by the Ohio River STEM Institute and our educational partners.

The Ohio River STEM Institute

The Ohio River STEM Institute is a unique partnership between Northern Kentucky University's Department of Biological Sciences and the Foundation for Ohio River Education (FORE).  The partnership is supported through grants and through NKU’s Ecological Stewardship Institute (ESI).  The goal of the partnership is to use the Ohio River and its watershed as a teaching tool for “immersing” students and teachers in Science, Engineering, Technology, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

The Ohio River STEM Institute works with a variety of departments within NKU, including the Center for Integrated Science and Mathematics and the Center for Environmental Education.  Each year, we host programs and workshops focused on water quality testing, Ohio River ecology and current pollution issues, for a diverse collection of audiences including students, science teachers, watershed volunteers, environmental educators, university students, and communities! The goal of these programs is to bring the STEM disciplines to life through innovative, inquiry-based activities that foster a sense of connection to the Ohio River.
