The Impolite Science of the Human Body Premiering September 14th at TCMU

Kids can explore why the body produces mushy, oozy, crusty scaly and stinky gunk at Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body at The Children's Museum of the Upstate (TCMU) beginning September 13th.

Greenville, South Carolina, USA, September 04, 2014 -- Sometimes it's stinky; sometimes it's crusty, and sometimes it's slimy. Thanks to a generous sponsorship by Publix Super Markets Charities, kids can explore why the body produces mushy, oozy, crusty scaly and stinky gunk at Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body at The Children's Museum of the Upstate (TCMU) beginning September 13th.

Based on the best-selling book Grossology, this exhibition uses sophisticated animatronics and imaginative exhibits to tell you the good, the bad and the downright ugly about runny noses, body odor and much more.

Grossology will be featured at TCMU until January 4, 2015. Visit the "Vomit Center" and learn the process to vomiting. Stop by the "Toot Toot" exhibit to create different sounds that replicate the physics of gas. Mimic the build up of acid indigestion by causing the "Burp Machine" to release a giant belch. Explore the role of the kidney in Urine: The Game." Climb a large-scale replica of human skin, and discover other mysterious ways your body's biology does what it needs to do to keep you healthy.

The Grossology exhibit will open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 13th following an exclusive member preview party on Friday, September 12th. "The museum staff is so excited to bring this popular exhibit to the children of the Upstate," says Nancy Halverson, President and CEO. "Grossology begins with the slang that young people use to describe thier bodily functions, then presents the science in a larger than life way that makes kids eager to learn."

Grossology is a collaboration between Science World, Advanced Exhibits, a division of Advanced Animations, LLC., and Grossology author Sylvia Branzei. As a teacher, writer, curriculum designer and microbiologist Branzei explains the concept of Grossology as a learning tool. "This is science in disguise," she says. "If we teach students in their own words, they'll understand better and actually learn something. For more information visit www.tcmupstate.org or email info@tcmupstate.org.
