Humboldt Squid Dissection

Project Description

In 2011, Ocean Opportunity teamed up with the North American Family Institute (NAFI) to host a Humboldt Squid Dissection for students at the Alternatives School in Providence, Rhode Island.

The Squids-4-Kids Program, facilitated by Hopkins Marine Lab, provides a mechanism for classrooms around the country to gain access to the elusive Humboldt Squid for educational purposes. Through a directed classroom dissection, students learn more about anatomy, biology, and the marine sciences.

We were thrilled to bring this opportunity to the Alteratives School to introduce the ocean environment to a group of students that would otherwise not have this type of access.
