Trout in the Classroom
Pennsylvania Trout in the Classroom (TIC) is an interdisciplinary program that introduces coldwater conservation education in Pennsylvania schools by raising brook trout, a native coldwater species, from eggs to fingerlings. The program helps to: Foster awareness of coldwater conservation in students grades 3–12 and; Encourage participation in coldwater resource projects and recreation programs.
PA TIC is made possible through a partnership between Pennsylvania Trout Unlimited, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, and Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Environment and Ecology. The partnership provides: Technical assistance, website and teacher forum; Grant opportunities; Brook trout eggs and trout food; Curriculum, aquarium resources and workshops.
