Pennsylvania's Trout In the Classroom (TIC) is a program in which students in grades 3-12 learn about cold water conservation while raising brook trout from eggs to fingerlings in a classroom aquarium. Since the fall of 2007, Mrs. Tenaglia and many student interested in aquatic ecology have participated in this program here at William Tennent High School.
Mrs. Tenaglia’s participation in the Trout In the Classroom program was made possible through a unique partnership between PA Fish and Boat Commission and PA Council of Trout Unlimited. This partnership, coupled with assistance from the Bucks County chapter of Trout Unlimited, was created to introduce Pennsylvania students to coldwater resources and their importance to all communities. The partnership also provides brook trout eggs, trout food, technical assistance, curriculum connections and teacher workshops each year.
