Clyde in the Classroom Project
Primary 4 pupils are to be involved in an exciting project to raise brown trout from eggs in a special classroom hatchery. The Clyde in the Classroom project is a Clyde River Foundation initiative that uses the life-cycle of a native Scottish species, the brown trout, to encourage children to engage with nature and develop a positive attitude towards their local environment and its conservation. On Friday 12th January the pupils had a very interesting visit to the Glasgow Science Centre for the project launch.
They are now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the eggs and hatchery to their classroom, where they will raise the trout and then release them into the environment before the Easter break.
We will keep you posted on how they are progressing.
