The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body Ever wonder what exactly is going on inside of you? Well at the Natural History and Science Museum in Albuquerque, NM, a current exhibit explains it all. The Grossology exhibit shows the daily processes your body goes through, from the inside to the outside. The exhibit is set up with interactive games and displays to make learning about the body fun. Primarily for kids, the exhibit allows a chance for kids to run, laugh, and play inside the museum without worrying the parents that they are being too noisy. There is even a small-scale rock wall set up for kids to play on. ‘Grossology’ has no defined order, rather it is a

trivia game that you can experience in any order. It is an interactive playhouse for visitors to enjoy and explore.

It gives information about allergies, sneezing, and runny noses to let participants know what is going on inside their body that makes mucus so troublesome. S m e l l s All over our bodies we sweat and eventually we start to smell. Why does being sweaty make you smelly? The answer is held in different types of bacteria that grow on the different part of your body that the visitor can see. Be careOrigins Scientific Research Society
