Soap, perfumes and bath bombs: chemistry is all around us! Students will learn and explore cosmetic chemistry with hands-on experiments. The bubbles of bath bombs will be used to understand chemical reactions. Acid and base chemistry will be explained as students make their own soap. Our budding chemists will discover how the shapes of molecules can be used to mimic smells. All our lab experiments will expose students to the skills needed for middle school and high school courses. Hands-on experiments will explore what makes bath bombs fizz, the structure of perfumes, the process of making lip balm and saponification.


  • Early Bird Pricing through April 18: $325
