Clyde in the Classroom is our best-known educational project, which develops themes pioneered in this country by the Galloway Fisheries Trust. Clyde in the Classroom is a hands-on introduction to freshwater ecology and the River Clyde, useing the life-cycle of the brown/sea trout to engage children with their local environment.
Since 2001, 16,221 pupils from 318 different Primary Schools have participated in Clyde in the Classroom. The project has therefore involved 57% of all Primary Schools within the River Clyde catchment and 15% of all Primary Schools in Scotland to date.
The project is carried out in partnership with the Glasgow Science Centre, the participating councils and a number of charitable grant awarding bodies and private companies. Please visit the Clyde in the Classroom website for further information.
