Stinky, icky "Grossology" returns to MODS

EWWWWWWW..... The Museum of Discory and Science will be up to its eyeballs in mucus and vomit and all sorts of stinky things when "Grossology: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body" returns for a second engagement on Saturday.

This is the popular traveling exhibit that explains how the human body works in ways that kids can understand. Since "Grossology" last visited MODS in 2001, they've added to and refreshed the whole exhibit.

Kids can help Burp-Man expel gas in his stomach, play a pinball game that shows how foods cause gas, take a tour of a slimy nose and climb a large replica of human skin to learn about blemishes -- warts and all. It's all very disgusting, so kids will love it.

There will be special activities Saturday and Sunday.

At the teddy bear clinic, staff from Joe DiMaggio's Children's Hospital will teach kids about medical equipment and basic anatomy. (10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, noon to 3 p.m. Sunday)

Watch a cow eyeball dissection (1:30 p.m.), participate in a burbing contest (2:30 p.m.), watch a shark feeding (3:30) and more.

The exhibit runs through May 2 at the museum, 401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale. Admission is $16 adults, $15 seniors, $12 children 2 to 12. Info: 954-467-6637;
