As a result of a connection made at a STEM symposium, I was able to arrange a visit for the BUGS girls to see all the different STEM activities that go into making cosmetics at Proctor & Gamble. Thanks to hard work by Stacey Mannes at P&G, we received presentations on what makes a good moisturizer, understanding what consumers want, and how to find out what kind of foreign objects might get into lipstick base and a demonstration of a 3-D printer. It was all very cool!
All of the presentations were great but I think the 3-D printer demonstration was the biggest hit.
Also, the folks at P&G were not only generous with their time but they also gave us goodie bags and Taylor Swift t-shirts and provided lunch! They also praised our students as well-behaved, curious, and engaged! Yay!!! BUGS!!!
