LITTLE ROCK, AR - A new network providing interactive museum exhibits for Arkansas school children and families will launch this month.

The Arkansas Discovery Network, funded by a $7 million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, will provide exhibits to seven museums across the state.

Little Rock's Museum of Discovery will serve as the network's hub and will host the network's first exhibit, "Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body."  The exhibit uses animatronics and play to explore runny noses, body odor and other aspects of the body.

Other network members include the Arkansas State Museum in Jonesboro, the Mid-America Science Museum in Hot Springs, the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas in Pine Bluff, the Texarkana Museums System, and the Arkansas Museum of Natural Resources in Smackover.

The Center for Mathematics and Science Education in Fayetteville is hosting exhibits until a permanent museum in northwest Arkansas is identified.
