Trout in the Classroom:

Photos (slow load)

Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is an environmental education program in which students in grades k-12 raise trout from eggs to fry.

  • Monitor tank water quality.
  • Engage in stream habitat study.
  • Learn to appreciate water resources.
  • Begin to foster a conservation ethic.
  • Grow to understand ecosystems.

Most programs end the year by releasing their trout in a state-approved stream near the school or within a nearby watershed. During the year each teacher tailors the program to fit his or her curricular needs. Therefore, each program is unique. TIC has interdisciplinary applications in science, social studies, mathematics, language arts, fine arts, and physical education. In each state, Trout in the Classroom is funded by a number of generous supporters and made richer through varied partnerships.

Currently Arrowhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited has two schools involved in TIC (Divine Redeemer Catholic School, Ford City PA and South Buffalo Elementary, Freeport PA). For the 2013-2014 school year an additional three schools may be added and supported through Arrowhead's involvement and finacial donation.
