Grossology and You


Grossology and You

A wise respiratory system once said, "Gross is in the eye of the beholder." After watching this planetarium show, you may start thinking differently about the "gross" side of the human body and what it does to protect us every day.

Join Noreen Neuron, host of the "Personal Universe" game show, as she leads us through a competition to decide which body system is the best and brightest. Will it be Scabby (the immune system), Boogie (the respiratory system) or Flatus (the digestive system)? Laugh and learn as these animated characters explore the inner workings of the human body!
