Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body
Get grossed out this summer!
Learn more about how your body works and functions, from the inside out! Walk through an enormous “working” stomach, complete with the sights, sounds and smells of the digestive process. Watch surgeries being performed, featuring the techniques of Dr. Edward B. Diethrich, in the Heart Surgery Theater. Explore the systems of the human body - from defense and immunity to cardio and pulmonary, digestive and skeletal. Hear your actual heartbeat as it is translated into sound on a bass drum.
Nano is an interactive exhibition that engages family audiences in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Hands‐on exhibits present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of this new technology.
