As part of the preparation for the PYP Exhibition, Grade 5 participates in a Genius Hour every week, where each student works on a project of interest with the goal being to develop new skills. Students need to research their topics and then share what they have learned with others.
Sakurako decided that she wanted to make her own makeup for her first Genius Hour project. She chose to make lipstick, which required beeswax, castor oil and pigment. Dr. Feeney helped her to obtain the ingredients and to produce some lipstick safely in the laboratory using some state-of-the-art equipment. Definitely not to be tried at home! Congratulations to Sakurako on a successful Genius Hour project!
