Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body

Last Day: September 3, 2013!

The Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body exhibition teaches kids all about their bodies with a climbing wall, a walk-in nose, pinball games, and even a giant burp machine. It’s a gas! Based on the best-selling book of the same title, Grossology uses sophisticated animatronics and imaginative exhibits to teach them all about the good, the yucky, and the downright ugly about runny noses, body odor, and much more.

Kids can…

  • Become a dust particle and walk through a giant nose to learn about air filtering, air heating, olfaction and mucus production.
  • Climb a human skin wall covered with warts, hairs, wounds and other objects.
  • Help a larger-than-life cartoon character release a giant burp by pumping soda into his stomach from a three-foot can.
  • Play Gas Attack pinball and collect points from bumpers dressed up as food items.
  • Crawl and slide through a 30+ foot-long 3D model of the digestive system.
  • Play surgery and attempt to remove organ parts from a body without touching the sides of the patient.
  • Act as a kidney by using a virtual reality glove and blue-screen technology to grab waste elements and remove them from the blood stream.
