What is that foul odour? In this BrainPOP UK movie, Tim and Moby teach you about your sense of smell and how it works. In this educational, animated movie you’ll learn why you can smell food cooking - even when you’re not in the kitchen, what special cells make up human scent organs, and how many thousands of different kinds of odours these cells can detect! You’ll also discover how certain hairs and nerve signals help your smell cells distinguish one scent from another. Plus, see how you can detect odours, in concentrations as small as one part per million, in the air, what animals have super smelling senses, and how your nose can save your life! Information never smelled so sweet!
