Scotmas’ CEO Alistair Cameron recently demonstrated his basic chemistry skills to a local Scout group by helping them to make bath bombs.
This demonstration was part of Scotmas’ STEM outreach programme in the local community.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The programme encourages young people to study and pursue careers in these fields. Scotmas’ outreach program focuses on educating young people about the importance of chemistry and engineering in our everyday lives.
During the session, Alistair Cameron explained the essential chemical reactions that give bath bombs their fizzy fun. He also showed the Scouts how to mix the ingredients and add the different colours and scents to create a personalised bath bomb.
The demonstration was a huge success, with the Scouts learning much about chemistry and having fun simultaneously. Alistair said, “It’s always great to see young people excited about science. I hope this experience will inspire them to pursue further studies in STEM subjects.”
Scotmas’ STEM outreach programme is just one example of how companies can give back to their local communities. By sharing their expertise and resources, companies can help to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, and innovators.
