Have you heard of the newest exhibit at the Orlando Science Center? As we all know, the Orlando Science Center offers hands-on fun for all ages, kids and kids at heart alike, by engaging in interactive exhibits via live programming, giant-screen films, school field trips and school-break camps. Whether you are a student or an educator, or a parent, you will surely enjoy each wonder there. So what's the latest at the center?

Well, it's the Grossology Exhibit - Orlando Science Center.... What in the world is that? Grossology, or in other words, The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body, is a colorful, hands-on exhibit that uses humor to teach health and biology. Some of these humorous hands-on opportunities to learn about the human body are the “Tour du Nose,” which explores how the nose acts as an air filter, a smell sensor, and a mucus producer. Another is the “Gas Attack,” a pinball game that will show you how food causes gas. Another one also, which mimic the buildup of acid indigestion is the “Burp Machine,” which ends each demonstration with a gigantic burp. And there are many others, the possibilities for disgusting discoveries are endless.

This exhibit is based on a book series by renowned author Silvia Branzei, which sold over 350,000 copies worldwide. The author, Branzei, is a teacher, writer, curriculum designer, and microbiologist, strongly believes in teaching science through gross things and this theme runs throughout the exhibit. This is the second Grossology exhibit for the Orlando Science Center. It hosted a successful run of Animal Grossology in 2006.

Anyone interested??? I know I am. So here are the important details...

The said exhibit will open to the public on January 31, 2009 in collaboration with Science World, Advanced Exhibits, and Grossology author Silvia Branzei and Sponsored by Arnold Palmer Hospital....
