dc.description.abstractIn this investigation of the Lewiston, Idaho Steelhead in the Classroom program, data results were used to determine the overall level of effectiveness of the 12 week Steelhead in the Classroom Program. Student knowledge of aquatic concepts and fish ecology were assessed while satisfying Idaho 5th grade science standards. Student pre and post examinations, teacher surveys, student interviews and student minute papers were analyzed to assess the value of mentor visits, and content taught in the classroom. Particular students whom would not normally perform well in science, proved to excel throughout the duration of the program as they were motivated by participating in a program that fit their interests.en
