Explore all the gross things our bodies do to keep us healthy at GROSSOLOGY: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body. Premiering May 27, 2006.
Sometimes it’s stinky; sometimes it’s crusty; and sometimes
it’s slimy. Explore why our bodies produce mushy, oozy, scaly
and smelly gunk at GROSSOLOGY: The (Impolite) Science of the
Human Body during its summer appearance at ECHO. Based on the
best-selling book, GROSSOLOGY features giant, interactive
animatronics and outrageous exhibits and games to tell the good,
the bad, and the yucky about runny noses, body odor and much
more. GROSSOLOGY — sponsored by Vermont Children’s Hospital at
Fletcher Allen Health Care — will be at ECHO from May 27 through
September 4, 2006.

- Nine-foot-tall “Nigel Nose-it-All”: Learn everything you
always wanted to know about the critical role of snot.
- “Y U Stink”: Smell your way through the world of body
