In this episode, the Science Guy explains that skin is the largest organ in the body and protects us from potential harm in many ways. He tells young science students how skin helps keep the body cool or warm, depending on the temperature outside. Without the touch receptors underneath the skin, they wouldn't be able to perform many of their everyday activities. Nye inserts his trademark humor and parody into the scientific discussion to create a fun learning atmosphere.
