Squeamish Haisley scientists dissect squid

Squid dissection in Jim Weindorf's fifth grade class March 20, 2013

Every year, Haisley fifth graders dissect squid. It’s a way to get them interested in life science, said teacher Jim Weindorf.

The students, lead by pharamacologist and toxicologist Dr. Alan Brown, learned how to cut the squid open, determine if it is a male or a female and find both its gills and ink sac. 

Dr. Brown has taught this annual squid exploration since 2001. The squid dissection is currently funded by the school’s PTO.
