Press release submitted by Bettendorf Community School District


Eighth grade students and teachers at Bettendorf Middle School are hosting the 2nd annual BMS Chemistry Expo on Tuesday, January 29 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. More than 90 groups of students will be showcasing their projects.

The projects involved combining 8th grade language arts and science. Students worked in groups to develop not only a product but also a business plan. They were asked to use their understanding of chemistry and scientific method to make their products in a lab. They also had to develop packaging and marketing as if they were a business. The products range from household cleaners to candles to lip screen and glosses, to alternative playdough, deodorants and much more.

"Business professionals from our community come in to assist the students with their business writing and advertising," said Stephanie Cleveland, language arts teacher, "Parents and guests to the expo will be impressed with their creativity with their products as well as logos and packaging design and advertising to 'sell' their products. I'm very proud of their work."
