Free Virtual Workshop
Apply for your kids to engage in the first workshop of the series, "Fish From Head to Fin". This workshop will feature the life cycle of trout, anatomy (parts of the fish), and include a comparison between fish and humans. Students will dive deep into the "insides" of fish by watching live fish dissections. We are planning to begin these sessions during mid-May (maybe a little earlier).
