F.C. High Students Track Trout Growth in Class Project

Students in the Foundations of Science class at Falls Church High School are not only studying life cycles, but are watching trout develop from egg to fry to adult trout.
In October, teacher Emily Dygve had students start their observations with eggs in a tank they care for in the classroom, part of a program by Trout Unlimited.

The students are responsible for making scientific observations, supervising environmental conditions, charting growth progress and, later in the year, releasing the trout into the wild.
