Students learn about biological systems as they dissect a squid, locate appendages, examine organs and gain an understanding of the squid’s physiological design. Pali instructors guide students through the dissection step-by-step and explain the importance of why we dissect in science.
The class begins by considering the potential scientific benefits gained through dissection, such as insights on anatomy and how to treat illness and disease. Students then dive into a guided squid dissection, simultaneously learning about the unique biological adaptations of this species of squid (like the infamous ink sac)!
