Sea Crest Clam Dissection
“It’s awesome, but gross!”
Tegan Mansell, 9, summed up the general consensus in the Sea Crest science room with this statement during a special clam dissection last Wednesday morning. “Sadie, feel the stomach with your bare hands!” she enthused, directing her classmate to run a finger over the slippery football-shaped organ.
At the conclusion of a study on clams, the third graders counted the ridges on the shells to find out how old their subjects were (often up to 5 times older than the students themselves!) and navigated their way through the bivalve’s innards “It’s harder to see the inside parts than it is on paper,” explained Oscar Hernandez, 10.
Then later in the week, the Sea Crest students got a special tour of our restaurant. We put them to work too! Here our some of our drink servers posing with Mary & Marty.

As always, we hope to see you in our dining room soon. (We promise not to make you bus your own dishes!)
