Cutting up

Biology Club members spend Friday afternoon dissecting squids, starfish

Upper School Science teacher Mr. Phil Nicodemo planned a dissection for the Biology Club last Friday, and there was quite a turnout.

There were squids, octopuses, and starfish. Upon entering Mr. Nicodemo’s room, everything was already set up and ready to be used. There were even packets of information on how to correctly identify the different animals’ body parts.

“It was fun to dissect something without having to worry about being graded for it,”  freshman Alyan Khoja said.

Mr. Nicodemo assisted students with the dissection. Freshman Haaris Ahmen was grateful for the hand.

“With Mr. Nicodemo’s help, I was able to dissect an octopus kind of successfully,” he said.
