Laundering money?? No, but you will handle all the real-world aspects of your new soap-making business: finance, sales, marketing & production.

How is soap made? Learn about saponification and analyze the impact of perfumes, dyes and detergents on water quality. How can we filter those out? What are low-impact ways to create a high-impact product?

Examine cash flow and stock distributions (and play the Stock Market Game!). Consider environmentally friendly ways to market, package and distribute your soaps.

What will your sustainable business model look like? Scientific inquiry, advertising art, decision-making skills, financial and mathematical interests – bring any and all of these talents to ECO Academy!
