iLabs: Marine Invertebrate Dissection Class last night

June 26, 2015

Last night we debuted our “Biology of Marine Invertebrates” Class, aka, Dissections class!  We had a nice group of 8 and spent two hours exploring the external and internal structures of a Quahog clam, Blue crab, and a squid.  The time flew by and all seemed to enjoy themselves.

We will be doing the Marine Vertebrates Dissection class —  using a perch, skate and dogfish shark — on Thursday night July 30th from 6-8. Go to the Museum website for Registration info.

Lastly, if you missed last night and you can’t join us next month, stay tuned. We will be doing both on Tuesday mornings in the fall!
