The creation of Bath bombs by: Zoe Renteria

Ideas

Throughout this six weeks we could submit a maker project application or carry on with another module. My team and I were getting a little bored with doing the same process over and over, so we decided to create an idea. Coming up with a maker idea was a little challenging because we wanted to be unique with it. Through this process we came up with many weird and different idea, from dog treats to make up. We realized that coming up with a whole new idea was really hard so we decided to improve an idea already existing. Our idea was bath bombs, bath bombs have been in the recent trend, so we thought that this would be the perfect idea to add a little something.

Applying

Before we could start with it we had to fill out an application and hopefully get accepted. At first I thought that this was going to be the hardest part, but it was the really helpful part. When filling it out, it asks you all the questions that makes you think if the idea is doable and reasonable. I found that it helped with our project by making us look up how much all the products are going to cost to inform us how much one product will be. We finished and turned it in. The next class period we were informed that we were accepted! I was so thrilled that we could get working.

Bath Bombs

For those who don’t know what a bath bomb is, it is a ball filled with ingredients like, essential oils, epsom salt, citric acid and so much more. All these ingredients mixed together to relieve your stress and help you relax. All bath bombs are made the same but you can have different ones with different senses. Making a bath bomb is really easy with a few easy steps. Get all the need ingredients and mix them together, crush up all the hard parts. Get your container to shape it and fill it up, put it together to get a sphere like shape. Let it dry for a couple of hours and boom, you have a ready to go bath bomb.

Why

The target for us are students at our school. Since our school is such high goals of for us, we tend to get a lot of homework and sometimes it’s very stressful. We’ve all experienced a stressful time in our lives and all we want it to stop and have a moment for ourselves. What better way to get that relaxed, stress free feeling? Take a bath, let your body stop and relax.

Learning

Throughout this process of our maker project has taught me a lot. I learned that you need to plan everything out, make sure it will work. A couple days ago members from Intel came to our school and was looking at our projects. One man took time to sit down with us a line listen to what we have then told us his feedback. It was really helpful to have him ask questions because some of them we never even thought about but would be very useful in our project. I have been really having fun working with my team mates on this. I am so grateful for having a team that is willing to go above and beyond on this project but still have fun doing so. This time around I really enjoy what our whole project is about, I can’t wait to see the final product at makarama.
