Scientific Explorer’s Disgusting Science

Scientific Explorer’s Disgusting Science

Plastic vomit and whoopee cushions have been kid favorites for decades, and finally that love of all things gross has been put to educational use in Scientific Explorer’s Disgusting Science ($16). Take swabs from between your toes, the dog’s bowl, a toilet seat, or anything else sufficiently nasty and see what you can grow in the four petri dishes. Learn about digestion and why it sometimes produces unpleasant side effects, make fake snot and blood, and even find out what’s growing right on your own skin!
