STINKY University

Do you love learning about the not-so-polite science of the human body? Do you (kids, that is!) think burping is hilarious? Would you get a kick out of cooking up some slime? If you think a little bit of gross is a whole lot of fun, you will enjoy STINKY University – that’s right, S.T.I.N.K.Y. U. = Sessions That Impart Noxious Knowledge You’ll Use!

STINKY University is geared to 6-12 year olds, though some mature 4-5 year-olds and some older kids (13-14) enjoy them as well. As long as bodily functions are amusing and interesting to them, they are the right age! Of course, fun-loving grown-ups get a kick out of them too – and often learn something themselves!

Live group classes: “Yuckonomics” 101 and 102

We host two live classes, taught here at Nationwide Children’s Hospital which feature some of the all-time favorite, but not-so-portable stuff that made GrossologyLIVE! (formerly offered here) so gag-o-nomically great!

“Yuck 101” and “Yuck 202” each last about an hour and cost just $3 per person. Classes are by appointment and reservations are important. A minimum of 10 people is required to hold a class. There is a 90 person maximum.
