Trout in the Classroom applications being accepted

LINCOLN, Neb. — Trout in the Classroom, a Nebraska Game and Parks Commission educational opportunity for schools and classrooms, will be accepting applications for the 2021-22 school year starting June 1.

The interdisciplinary, science-based curriculum invites classrooms and schools to explore aquatic ecosystems, life cycles, water quality and the scientific process through raising trout eggs in their classroom during the spring semester.

“My students absolutely love this program,” wrote one teacher about the 2020-21 program. “There is so much value in not just raising the trout, but also the education aspect.”

Applications are due Aug. 31. Learn more about the program at OutdoorNebraska.org/TroutInTheClassroom.
