Clyde in the Classroom allows children to rear trout fry from eggs in a specially-designed classroom hatchery.
The hatcheries are installed into classrooms throughout the catchment by Clyde River Foundation scientists soon after the project launch day. Pupils are given roughly a week to practice caring for their hatchery before the arrival of the fish eggs.
Over a few weeks, the school children can watch the development of small trout fry from the eggs that were first delivered to their classroom. It is a very exciting project, which is often a gateway for learning about a whole range of subjects.
