Bath Bombs and Rockets

This Teachers TV video shows how science AST, Alison Tiltman, is keen to work closely with other departments and encourage cross curricular learning. Combining science, design and technology, and maths, her Year Nine students take part in a challenge to imagine they are running their own cosmetics companies. As part of the project they must design, build, market and sell their own bath bombs. In their design and technology class, they vacuum-form the bomb's moulds and work on their packaging design. Meanwhile, in science they look at the chemistry of bath bombs, and in maths they explore the financial side of their businesses.
