If it’s icky, slimy or smelly, it’s fair game.

“Grossology,” a five-day CU Boulder camp for elementary school-age children, explores all things “gross” through experiments with slippery, messy things — including dissected animal organs — and lessons in natural happenings, such as how cavities form and what causes skunks’ odor.

The camp is part of CU Science Discovery, a program founded in 1983 to offer STEM-focused K-12 summer camps, after-school programs and teacher trainings.
