Sometimes it’s stinky; sometimes it’s crusty; and sometimes it’s slimy. Explore why your body produces mushy, oozy, crusty, scaly and stinky gunk at Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body, presented by Shasta Regional Medical Center, live at Turtle Bay Exploration park, Summer 2011. Based on the best-selling book Grossology, by Sylvia Branzei, this science-in-disguise exhibition uses more than 20 interactive displays to tell you 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
