slides: EcoTarium Hosts Arm Fart Competition to Celebrate Gross Bodies

Monday, June 25, 2012

 

Worcester's EcoTarium hosted an arm fart competiton in conjunction with their Grossology exhibit, which celebrates the “(impolite) science of the human body,” which can be a weird, wonderful, and often nasty world.

The contest judges over a dozen youngsters (and one not-so-young contestant) on their ability to make the loudest, quickest, and most creative arm farts in ten seconds. The three different rounds saw three winners who each took home a golden whoopee cushion. Host, Alex Dunn, an educator at the museum, coached the kids through their competition.

The exhibit is based on the best-selling book, Grossology, and 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.

Julieane Frost, Manager of Communications and Marketing at the EcoTarium came up with the brilliant concept to get kids interested in the weird and sometimes disgusting world of anatomy.

The museum saw a successful turnout for the opening day, as children climbed the skin toned rock wall to learn about the intricate and often gross world right on our outsides.

The EcoTarium will be hosting their Too Gross Tuesdays from June 26 - August 28, at 12:30 p.m. Learn gross, but fascinating stuff about humans and animals in these weekly programs. Free with museum admission.
