Trout in the Classroom
Something fishy is definitely going on in the Mountain Academy for Arts and Sciences! Specifically, baby trout. Our trout eggs have arrived and, for the whole school, the gestation and growth of the beautiful little creatures is the talk of the elementary town. Sixth and Second graders have prepared the tank to required specification and are leading this effort to raise these tiny fish into ones that can be certified for release into local streams and waterways. Along the way, children across the school will have the opportunity to witness this amazing, hands-on science learning.
