From the science of bodies to insects and beyond, science is gross and this book is full of fun ways to learn about it. Explore the layers of your skin and or make a model of intestines to figure out the science of poop. Investigate how germs spread, or the makeup of a virus and why snot helps keep you healthy. When you've had enough of anatomy, you can take stock of the creepy critters (dustmites!) in your own bed. Emma Vanstone, author of This Is Rocket Science and Snackable Science Experiments, has 60 new activities to investigate everything icky so you can find out exactly how all the smelliest, stickiest, scariest things work.

Whether you want to discover the funny things a body does or the ghastly creatures all around you, there's always something new to learn. Find out what makes your breath so smelly or why stinky foods taste better when you hold your breath. Do your own easy, exciting dissections with homemade models for a brain or heart. Experiment in your own home by making spooky mirror messages or take a terrifying bath with the Bug Bath Bomb. There's plenty of cool, revolting activities to help you learn about the world.

The book has 60 crafting projects and 75 colour photosgraphs.

Review quote

"Just when you think you have seen it all, Emma pulls these fantastic science experiments out of the bag. Who knew science could be so fun and...gross?"
--Maggy Woodley, founder of Red Ted Art, author of Easy Paper Projects

"Kids love anything gooey, stinky, mushy and nasty and that's why this is a phenomenal science book for children! Not only does it contain weirdly wonderful science projects featuring children's favorite topics, it also teaches kids about how their body works."
--Ana Dziengel, founder of Babble Dabble Do and author of STEAM Play & Learn

"This book is packed full of brilliant, yet gross ideas that will turn your reluctant learner into a budding scientist in an instant!"
