Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body
Get grossed out this summer!
May 23, 2015 - September 07, 2015
Learn about the good, the bad, and the downright ugly functions of your body at Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body this summer! This exhibition uses incredible computer graphics and creative displays to bring the best-selling book Grossology, by Sylvia Branzei, to life. Some of the hands-on, interactive elements include becoming a dust particle to learn what causes sneezes, pumping soda into a huge cartoon character to understand the pressures in his stomach before he burps, sliding through a 30 foot long digestive system to see what the inside of your body looks like from mouth to large intestine and much more! Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body, is located in the Sybil B. Harrington Galleries.

Experience the thrill of a high-wire physics lesson. Suspended nearly 15 feet in the air, the Evans Family SkyCycle teaches riders about the principles of counterbalance and center of gravity, while taking a ride on the 90-foot cable.
The Forces of Nature exhibit is devoted to understanding and respecting Earth as a dynamic planet. Hold on as you experience the shaking of an earthquake, the force of hurricane winds, the heat of a forest fire and the eruption of a volcano.
