FRISCO, Texas, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Prepare to be totally en-GROSS-ed! Welcome to the interactive exhibition that takes a slightly different view of Fluffy, Fido and the rest of the Animal Kingdom in "Animal Grossology," premiering at Sci-Tech Discovery Center ("Sci-Tech") September 22 through December 30, 2012.
Following in the footsteps of the overwhelmingly popular "Grossology, the (Impolite) Science of the Human Body" exhibition, comes the next generation in the GROSSOLOGY series. Oozing with disgusting science and interactive learning games, the all-new "Animal Grossology" exhibit is sure to provide a unique perspective on the animal kingdom. Sci-Tech, in conjunction with Advanced Exhibits, the exhibit's producer, invites the public to experience some of the slimiest, stinkiest and downright yuckiest creatures on earth. "Animal Grossology" opens September 22, 2012, and is sponsored by Baylor Medical Center at Frisco, ESI and individual participants in Sci-Tech's Gross Giving Campaign."This exhibit is mostly made possible by the support of our individual donors who gave generously to our Gross Giving Campaign," says Erica Yaeger, Sci-Tech's Executive Director. "This fun exhibit contains solid science and introduces it in a way that will make visitors of all ages giggle."
The exhibition contains solid science and introduces it in a way that makes kids giggle. It's science disguised in interactive entertainment and kids are more apt to learn when they're having fun doing it. You may think leeches are pretty gross but they're used after some surgeries to assist in the healing process. Did you know that cows are one of the gassiest animals on earth? Learn why the dung beetle is nature's living pooper scooper and why scientists are studying slug and snail slime production for clues in treating cystic fibrosis.
Sci-Tech Discovery Center is open Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, Saturday from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm and Sunday from noon until 6:00 pm. The center is closed on Mondays. Tickets are $7.00 and children two and under are free. Group rates are available for groups of ten or more. Annual family memberships start at only $85 and include invitations to exhibit premiers and additional discounts to other camps and parties. Follow on Twitter: @SciTechDC
