The Grosser the Better

Boys can be gross.

Girls can be gross too!

The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center is calling all families with gross children between the ages of 6 to 14 to compete in the GROSS OLYMPICS!

Do your chidren have the smelliest sneakers? The loudest burp? Can your child spit great distances? It’s time to reward them with fabulous prizes at the Gross Olympics.

It’s all in good fun, and should be pretty funny too. The Gross Olympics are being held in conjunction with The Fleet’s newest exhibit, Grossology. We’ve already been three times — both my son AND my daughter think it’s really cool. We will definitely be watching the Gross Olympics, and I may let Gage wear his Clone Wars sneakers without socks that day so that he has a fighting chance in the competition!

The Gross Olympics will be held at the Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park on Saturday, July 7th.

10 AM: Contest Registration Opens
11 AM: Loudest Burp Contest
12 PM: Pit Spitting Contest
1 PM: Smelly Sneaker Contest
2 PM: Peristaltic Push Relay

While you’re there, be sure to check out the Fleet’s Family Science Saturday event in the tinkering studio. We’ve never tinkered before, so looking forward to this family first.

All events are free with admission. Hope to see you there!
