The newest exhibition at Discovery Place is oozing with disgusting science and entertaining, hands-on learning games. Animal Grossology introduces scientific concepts in ways that make kids (of all ages) giggle.  It’s a close up look at some of the more disgusting things animals do and how all that  can actually be fun, funky and fascinating.

The newest addition to the main entrance on North Tryon Street is a gassy bovine that could put someone in the spotlight. You could appear on a Discovery Place billboard by simply taking a picture with the “gassy cow.” Share it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #BlownAwayByScience and you might be featured on a billboard in the Charlotte metro area.

This morning on Larry’s Look, we got a new look at Animal Grossology and checked out that crazy cow!  Larry was challenged by some local kids to sample some chocolate-covered bugs.  Did he make it through the “taste test”?  Check-out the video and you’ll see!
