event during GROSSOLOGY: "Find the Foot" game: Test your
scientific observation skills and play “Find the Foot” each week
at ECHO! We’ll stamp a special Grossology “Find the Foot” card
at our front desk each time you discover its unusual location in
ECHO’s exhibits. When you find it in five different locations
over the course of the exhibit’s stay (through January 8, 2012),
you'll receive a Grossology Goodie Bag filled with fun and
useful (and potentially gross) stuff from ECHO and the Vermont
Children’s Hospital at Fletcher Allen Health Care.
The above programs may seem silly and totally gross (well, they
are) but they are designed to teach in a way that catches
children's attention. These are important lessons wrapped up in
gross, fun and totally disgusting packages.
And it works!
Join in the fun on these dates or come to ECHO any time between
September 17 and January 8 to explore and enjoy the Grossology
exhibit at your own pace!
We guarantee you'll learn a thing or two...and have fun in the
