Today, I decided to interview Mr. Robnett and ask a couple questions about what will happen in his and other science classes in the next few weeks. Here’s what he said:

  • When did you first start teaching science? -“In 1987, I first started teaching science.”
  • What do you find exciting while teaching science? -“It is important for people to know how the body works, how we know everything we do. Science makes the world make more sense, and more scientifically literate.”
  • Why do you have so many squids? -“There is going to be a dissection for the biology class.”         
  • When and where did they all come from? -“Almost all squids come from Oxnard. They come from the ocean to Oxnard to breed, since we have lots of mud it is the best place for the females to lay eggs. Unfortunately, our water has been slightly warmer these years so they haven’t caught as much as in past years.”
  • What are you planning to use them for? -“Oceanography classes with Mrs. Sell will dissect next Tuesday. The SPED organization has also taken some interest in the squids so they will be helping dissect as well. As for Mrs. Teare and my biology classes, we will be dissecting in early May.”
  • What do the students learn when they are dissecting the squid? -“Anatomy, what all the parts are used for, the different sizes of tentacles and what they mean, how they use them to catch prey, and their unique beak for eating.” 
  • Tell me about interesting features squids have. -“When the girl squids are delivered to us, some have eggs inside of them. They also have many different eye shapes and the brain because they are actually very smart animals.”
  • So, does this mean extra calamari on your pizza? -“Absolutely! Mr. Calloway is going to make it for us.”
