A Multi-User Virtual Environment for Learning Scientific Inquiry and 21st Century Skills
The River City Project is no longer supported by outside funding or grants. It is a financially self-sustaining program.
There is a nominal per student fee or a site license for participating schools. This cost is outlined below. Educators should investigate whether they are eligible for funding such as Title 1, IDEA or other methods. Additionally, by moving to this model many teachers and students who have previously not been eligible due to the research requirements might now be able to take advantage of this outstanding teaching tool.
Since there is such a range in the size of classes using River City we have created a licensing structure that is based per student with discounts for larger class sizes.
These are for unique Student names
10 Student Class $129.00
20 Student Class $250.00
50 Student Class $550.00
100 Student Class $1000.00
For pricing of classes larger than 100 students please contact us with your needs
Our goal is to make sure that as many students as possible can benefit from the program. We have based our pricing on numerous conversations with your community. Some teachers have suggested that they might make this a lab fee.
We realize that some districts are hard pressed for funding. If you would like to discuss anything regarding this pricing structure or what our plans for the future are, please feel free to contact us directly.
Once again thank you for your response and continued support. We are sure the coming school year will be better than ever and by working together we will make River City a great place to take a class!
Is River City Right for You?
All middle grades (6-9) teachers in North America are invited to participate in the River City Project. Although we traditionally work with science teachers, we have worked with social studies, math, language arts and even phys. ed. teachers with much success. Visit our page, Is River City Right for You? to take your first steps toward implementing River City with your students.
