Here’s a chance for your kids to use “potty talk” in a scientific way! And it all starts this weekend at Tacoma’s Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium with a “Poo Party”, Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22.

Here’s some of the things you can do at the party:
– Test your scooping skills in the Outhouse Challenge
– Try out various poop picker-uppers that zookeepers use
– Match the droppings to the animal in “Whose Scat is That?”
– Check out products made of poop that will be on display.

There’s even a poop app. While at the zoo, you can use your iPhone or Android phone to access the free app “SCVNGR” to play a special scavenger hunt game. It connects your newfound knowledge of poop with the rest the zoo and provides those who play with exclusive rewards.

The Scoop on Poop exhibit is FREE with admission. The exhibit runs through September 11, 2011. For more information, go to the zoo’s website at http://www.pdza.org.
