Orlando Science Center has been in the industry since January of 1955 when the Central Florida Federation of Art and Sciences, a group of visionary Central Florida citizens chartered a small non-profit science museum which to be called the Central Florida Museum and Planetarium. It has come a long way since then. At present, it attracts nearly 400,000 visitors each year and it remains one of the most attended cultural institutions in Central Florida. Personalizing the guest experience by demonstrating how science impacts everyday life is its main goal.
On January 31, 2009 is the premiere of Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body, a colorful and hands-on exhibit that uses humor to teach kids about health and biology sponsored by Arnold Palmer Hospital. This Grossology Exhibit - Orlando Science Center is in collaboration among Science World, Advanced Exhibits and Grossology author Silvia Branzei. Based from a book series by author Silvia Branzei, which has sold over 350,000 copies worldwide. She is a teacher, writer, curriculum designer, microbiologist and is a strong believer of teaching science through gross things and this theme runs throughout the exhibit. This is the second Grossology exhibit for the Orlando Science Center. The first successful run of Animal Grossology was held in 2006.
I recommend this to everyone specially kids and everybody who is young at heart. Grossology offers humorous "hands-on" opportunities to learn about the human body such as the nose which explores how your nose acts as an air filter, a smell sensor and a mucus producer. Then, there’s “Gas Attack,” a pinball game that will show you how food causes gas. You can mimic the buildup of acid indigestion with the “Burp Machine,” of which concludes each demonstration with a gigantic burp. They say that the possibilities for disgusting discoveries are close to endless. Fun, exciting , very educational plus you can have the chance to test your Grossology knowledge with multiple trivia activities, exploratory labs, puzzles and games.
You will really have fun. Bring your family and I will be seeing you there.
