"This is science in disguise," says Sylvia Branzei, a microbiologist and author of the best-selling Grossology book series. "If we teach students in their own words, they'll understand better and actually learn something."

Over 20 interactive games and animatronic displays make kids giggle as they learn about sneezing, vomiting, belching, sweating, body odor, bad breath, and other gross stuff!!  At Grossology visitors explore fun, interactive activities, including:

  • Taking a "Tour du Nose" to learn how your nose acts as an air filter, a smell sensor and mucus producer.
  • Riding on the GI slide.
  • Climbing a large-scale replica of human skin.
  • And discovering other mysterious ways your body's biology does what it needs to do to keep you healthy!

Come see what all the STINK is about!  Grossology:  The Impolite Science of the Human Body is on display January 24April 21, 2013, at the Alden B.
