Great Lakes Science Center, home of the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, makes science, technology, engineering & math come alive! #StayCuriousCLE
How many times a day do you hear your kids say "Ewww, gross!"? Whether it's boogers, burps, passed gas or stinky feet, kids are fascinated by everything grown-ups find disgusting, and that's exactly what we celebrate in our newest special exhibition! Welcome to the wonderful world of Grossology, a science-in-disguise exhibition where kids get the answers to many of the slimy, oozy, crusty, stinky questions they absolutely love to ask about the human body!
Kids, along with intrigued adults (you know you want to!), will have the opportunity to become a dust particle and walk through a giant nose to learn about air filtering, olfaction and mucus production, climb a human skin wall complete with warts, hairs and wounds to learn about the epidermis layer, and watch how food is digested as it passes through the gastrointestinal system! Not gross enough yet? You can also help a larger-than-life cartoon character release a giant burp to find out why soda pop causes stomach pressure! Or, be a surgeon-for-a-day and attempt to remove organ parts from a body without touching the sides of the patient. Oh, and don't forget to visit the Vomit Center (you read that correctly) to explore the many reasons people throw up!
The special exhibition arrives at the Science Center on Friday October 12 and runs through January 6, 2019! Grossology is included with general admission.
