Springfield Museums Exhibit "The Scoop on Poop"

LAST WEEKS! Fish do it, frogs do it, pythons, eagles and elephants do it, yet “poop” is one of those subjects we find difficult to talk about with a straight face. Kids, however, are positively fascinated by it, which provides a great opportunity for learning and exploration. The 4,000 square-foot exhibit also explores how people from veterinarians and paleontologists to Maasai tribesmen and power companies utilize animal waste. Excrement is also a scientific detective puzzle, since much can be learned about an animal from what it leaves behind. May 28 through September 4, 2016.
