Offbeat: Grossology

JONESBORO, AR(KAIT)--Grossology is the study of all things gross and at ASU Museum, grossology class is in session.  The grossology exhibit is about all the gross things that our human body produces and it allows everyone to experience those things first hand.

The exhibits include a burp machine, a sniff guessing game, a fart factory, the urine game, a grossology quizz show game, the barf game, a snot faucet, and a giant version of the game "Operation."  Everything is "hands-on" and all the words we tell our kids not to say are not only allowed, but encouraged.

"From the youngest child to grandma and grandpa, everyone gets a kick out of the grossology exhibit," said Jill Kary, with ASU Museum.  "The exhibit is all about getting people involved in the impolite science of the human body.  It's all about stimulating young minds in an effort to help them learn."

Grossology is a traveling exhibit funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and is free to the public.  The exhibit is open until January 4, 2009... Tuesday--Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday--Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.  It is closed all Mondays and the following days during the holidays:  December 24, 25, 26, and January 1.
