Start participating in the program by attending two free workshops!
The Classroom Aquarium Education Program (CAEP), known as Salmonids in the Classroom, teacher workshops give teachers the tools they need to hatch salmon or trout in their classrooms and then release the fish into the wild. The goal of this program is for the students to learn to be stewards of the watersheds in which they live.
The program can be used in pre-K through college level, and it works very well with Common Core and the Next Generation Science Standards.
Equipment, if it is available, will be lent to you. Many teachers obtain grant money or funding through other sources for the equipment that is needed.
Teachers new to the CAEP must attend a two-part online workshop and includes some homework, Aquatic Project WILD training is included, before participating. Workshops will cover program basics, equipment set up, and ideas for teaching the program in the classroom and on your field trip.
The workshops are free. The workshops listed here are intended for teachers who will have their field trip in one of the following counties: Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Stanislaus, Tulare, or Tuolumne.
