The 2017 Scrub Up On Science Competition final quite literally took off at Leicester’s National Space Centre. The 6 finalists created some truly out of this world bath bombs, impressing judges with their scientific knowledge and creativity and thrilling them with their enthusiasm. There had to be a winner and congratulations go to the year 9 team from Plashet School in London on their winning Fizz Wizz bath bomb. The team will be invited to visit a cosmetic manufacturer to experience science in action.

“Before this project we didn’t know there was so much science involved in creating cosmetics,” said the winning team of Arundhuthi, Khandijah and Fatima. “It has helped us understand that there is science to everything and we have more respect for the cosmetics industry.”

All the teams really were winners so huge congratulations also go to the other finalists: a second team from Plashet School, Trinity High School near Glasgow, Malton School in North Yorkshire, Haltwhistle School in Northumberland and St Mary's College in Derry, Northern Ireland.

The Scrub Up On Science competition will be back next year. We're encouraging all schools to get involved!
