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.

GrossologySometimes 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.

Exhibition highlights include:

  • 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 odor.
  • The “Skin Climbing Wall”: Use warts, hairs, and wounds as hand and foot holds, while learning about pimples, blisters, and bruises.
  • “The Vomit Center”: Answers the timeless question, “Why do we throw up?”
  • “Toot Toot”: Create an orchestral arrangement of not-so-classy gassy sounds.
  • “Urine: The Game”: A virtual reality tour of the kidneys.
  • “Burp Man”: Pump enough soda pop into this huge cartoon character, and the acid indigestion builds to his releasing a humongous belch.

This blockbuster exhibit is fun for all ages, educational, and just plain gross - you'll love it! Visit the Grossology Website to see more of the exhibit.
