Japan wins for inventing the most creative way to teach kids about toilets.
In Osaka, a museum exhibition featuring a poop roller coaster has captured the attentions of kids everywhere. Donning poop-shaped hats, children can climb up a 16-foot toilet and slide into a giant potty.
This special exhibition is titled “Toilet!? - Human Waste & Earth's Future” and was created for two reasons. First, it was meant to encourage children to talk openly about the toilet, and second, to call attention to the fact that 2.5 billion people in the world don’t have access to clean facilities.
“Toilets and feces are normally thought of as very unclean topics, but I would like for people to actively talk about them instead of just thinking that they're dirty,” exhibit staff member Tami Sakamaki said.
Besides the poop roller coaster, the exhibit also features singing, interactive toilets and various types of stools, both human and animal. Additionally, kids can learn how different types of toilets are used around the world.
Last year, the show visited Tokyo’s Miraikan Science Museum where it received quite a bit of media attention for its unique method of teaching an unconventional topic.
