Who knew a summer camp called Grossology
could be so disgustingly fun?
The kids did!!
And gross fun we had as we read books, wrote stories, learned about how our bodies work, created gross things in the Maker Space, cooked and baked (and ate!) interesting concoctions, played toilet tag, engineered slime tubes, watched gross animal videos, ate blood, performed lab tests, had burping contests and more, all in the name of grossness.

|Eating layers of skin--ew!|
|Gross--this skin is dirty! (crushed Oreos)|
|The shirt says it best--pew!|
|We love slime, especially green slime!|
|All working together to engineer a slime tube|
|I vant to eat yourrrr blood!|
Eating Bandaids for a snack
|The parts of blood--red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets|
|Dookie cookies. Yummmmm!|
|Finger licking good|
|Various types of animal scat|
|Testing the strength of toilet paper|
One group discovered that toilet paper commercials are misleading. The "squeezable" brand isn't the strongest!
|Testing the absorbency of paper towels.|
|Testing how much water a baby diaper can hold|
|This group's diaper held over 1000 ML of water!|
|What makes a diaper absorbent? Opening up a wet diaper to find out|
|The grossest field trip ever--a trip to the Redondo Waste Water Treatment Plant.|
Each student graduated from the class with a degree in Grossology and an encouragement to keep exploring all things gross.
