GROSSOLOGY: The Impolite Science of the Human Body
MIDLAND, Mich., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kids and adults will love discovering the science behind the slimy, mushy, oozy, and stinky things that occur every day in the human body at Grossology: The Impolite Science of the Human Body now on display at the Alden B. Dow Museum of Science and Art at Midland Center for the Arts. Visitors should prepare themselves for the good, the bad and the downright ugly about runny noses, body odor and much more!
"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!
