Wha he was really proud of was covering highschool biology in just three weeks. Is this even possible?

  4. Hi Paige, thanks for this directory. I run a recreational skincare chemistry school with hands-on experience, for kids/teens from 8 to 15 (and adults !) in Arlington. I am running different sessions for spring break and summer camps 2021. We will be making shampoo bar, coconut hair conditioner plastic-free lotion bar (emulsion, gel, foaming techniques). I was wondering how to be featured? (the link, ‘chat with us’ is broken right now). It is also a good way to celebrate a birthday with a fun and educative experience. Thanks for the follow-up.
