Description

You don’t have to travel 10,000 leagues under the sea to encounter different types of underwater monsters that might lurk in the depths. You can dissect them right at home!
 
In This Take home lab, you will look at the diversity of life in the deep dark ocean by dissecting a foot-long, color changing, beaked, inking squid. Then you’ll compare it to the anatomical benefits of being a jawless lamprey whose suction-cup mouth is ringed with tiny sharp teeth, a crab that uses its claws to manipulate its food, and a starfish that projects its stomach over its prey to digest it outside its body.
 
Throughout this lab, we’ll compare these creatures with other crawling, slithering, swimming monsters of the sea. Together we’ll look at how the diversity of life and each organism is specialized to survive the cold, dark deep!

Each student will receive an experimenter's toolbox filled with all of the tools and specimens they'll need to complete an anatomy dissection at home with live casted virtual guidance by a clinical anatomist.  (STEAM At Home requires access to Zoom video call for the live learning experience.  If access to Zoom is not available, a pre-recorded video link will be available for recorded dissection walkthrough)
