Montana State University in Bozeman will host a workshop for Montana teachers from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, July 10, to learn about Trout in the Classroom, an environmental education program developed by Trout Unlimited that allows K-12 students and teachers to raise trout from eggs to fry while learning about water quality, conservation and ecosystems.
The workshop will cover trout biology and the basics of aquatic ecosystem health, along with how to set up and maintain a Trout in the Classroom program. Participants will also meet their “go-to” program contacts; learn about additional educational opportunities and funding options to support the program; and explore field activities at the local fish hatchery. Trout in the Classroom is an interdisciplinary program that blends science, social studies, mathematics, language arts, fine arts, physical education and conservation.
The workshop will be filled on a first-come/first-served basis. Register online at http://eu.montana.edu/noncredit. The cost is $60 and covers course materials. Teachers can earn continuing education units or Office of Public Instruction renewal units.
The workshop is taught by Trout Unlimited and the International Trout Congress, and is hosted at MSU by the Master’s of Science in Science Education (MSSE) program and Extended University.
