The Lincoln HIlls Cares Environmental Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (E-STEM) Pathway connects students to captivating enrichment opportunities that maximize individual student potential and ensure students have the resources and experiences to be global stewards in an environmental science career pathway.
Trout in the Class
The instructional framework for the ESTEM pathway is the Trout in the Classroom Curriculum. Trout in the Classroom is an environmental education program where students raise trout from eggs to fry. The eggs are retrieved from the Crystal River in Carbondale Colorado and placed in tanks in the school classroom. The tanks are treated as independent hatcheries from August until May. In May, the students release the fry in Lake Pactolus at Lincoln Hills.
