Explore all the gross things our bodies do to keep us healthy at GROSSOLOGY: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body.

Back by popular demand, Open Now - January 8, 2012

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 autumn 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 September 17 through January 8, 2012.

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
There a lot that's gross about the exhibit and plenty of ways to get you involved in gross activities.
Learn more about the Grossology exhibit and discover the fun and gross programs that were developed with the medical professionals at the Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen Heath Care!

This blockbuster exhibit is fun for all ages! It is educational, "colorful", and just plain gross — you'll love it!
