Dissection Day At MSMS

On Thursday, Feb. 23, 2016 MSMS hosted a group of gifted students from Caledonia Elementary School to take part in Dissection Day. The elementary students spent the day working with MSMS students and faculty to learn about the anatomy of sharks and squids.

The younger students, with help from the MSMS students, had the opportunity to conduct real dissections in a laboratory setting.

Dissection Day is only one of several outreach programs offered by the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science.
