  1. Animal Grossology Exhibit

    May 17, 9:00 AM - December 30, 5:00 PM @ Mississippi Museum of Natural Science

    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. The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, in conjunction with Advanced Exhibits, the exhibit's producer, invites you to experience some of the slimiest, stinkiest and downright yuckiest creatures on earth. The exhibition contains solid science and introduces it in a way that makes kids giggle. It is science disguised in interactive entertainment and kids are more apt to learn when they're having fun doing it. The exhibition was created and produced by Advanced Exhibits, a division of Advanced Animations LLC, in collaboration with Sylvia Branzei, the author of the GROSSOLOGY series of books. The books are published through Price Stern Sloan, a member of Penguin (USA) Inc.
