Upcoming Exhibits


Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body is a fun, exciting and educationally stimulating exhibition based on the best-selling book, Grossology, by science teacher Sylvia Branzei. Explore how and why your body produces mushy, oozy, crusty, scaly and stinky gunk that many people think are gross. This colorful exhibit includes more than 20 interactive displays and challenges to explain the good, the bad and the downright ugly about the human body and how it works. 

  • Visit the Vomit center and learn the many reasons humans vomit
  • Become a dust particle and walk through a giant nose to learn about air filtering, air heating, olfaction and mucus production
  • Crawl and slide through a 30+ foot-long 3-D model of the digestive system
  • Learn how boogers are formed by launching dirt balls into a larger-than-life nose. Be careful though, it may sneeze and shoot back a slew of dirt balls!
  • Play surgery and attempt to remove organ parts from a body without touching the sides of the patient
