Some serious science goes into creating cosmetics. This in mind, Jennifer Rose, a science teacher at Olson Middle School in Minneapolis, created an awesome way to teach chem, called Make-Up Your Mind. Students use analyzation methods to uncover the chemical properties of the raw materials found in the, urn, makeup of makeup. They test tubes of lipstick, mascara and more, and even create their own lotion and lip gloss. Seem fascinating? You're not the only one who thinks so. For her too-cool teaching methods, Ms. Rose was awarded a Toyota Tapestry Grant for nearly $10,000, all for her project--that's a pretty penny!
