When was the last time you were truly en-GROSS-ed? Following in the footsteps of the overwhelmingly popular “Grossology, the (Impolite) Science of the Human Body” exhibition, comes the next generation in the GROSSOLOGY series. Oozing with disgusting science and interactive learning games, the all-new “Animal Grossology” exhibit is sure to provide a unique perspective on the animal kingdom DISCOVERY Children’s Museum, in conjunction with Advanced Exhibits, the exhibit’s producer, invites you to experience some of the slimiest, stinkiest and downright yuckiest creatures on earth. The exhibit opens on Jan. 30 and runs through April 17, 2016.
The exhibition contains solid science and introduces it in a way that makes kids giggle. It’s science disguised in interactive entertainment and kids are more apt to learn when they’re having fun doing it. You may think leeches are pretty gross but they’re used after some surgeries to assist in the healing process. Did you know that cows are one of the gassiest animals on earth? Learn why the dung beetle is nature’s living pooper scooper and why scientists are studying slug and snail slime production for clues in treating cystic fibrosis.
Visitors slimy good time will include:
Becoming a scarab beetle in a retro “Atari-type” world by competing against each other in a challenging dung ball roll race
Seeing larger-than-life bloodsuckers and learning why they need blood and where they store it in their bodies
And, learning why a cat’s anatomy is the reason why cat’s spit up hairballs
The exhibition was created and produced by Advanced Exhibits, a division of Advanced Animations LLC, in collaboration with Sylvia Branzei, the author of the GROSSOLOGY series of books. The books are published through Price Stern Sloan, a member of Penguin (USA) Inc.
