To help spur the educational development of the Cincinnati-area, Bounty kicked off their week-long program on Monday with students at the P&G Winton Hill Business Center offices. During the kickoff, Bounty employees were able to share first-hand perspective on their careers with participants and conducted interactive product demonstrations to help the students understand the science behind papermaking. Back in the classroom, students were able to put their knowledge to the test as they began work on challenge activities, including Super Soaker, Weight Lifter, Skyscraper and Egg Drop. Each activity is designed specifically to engage students and help them learn the fundamentals of scientific data collection and analysis.

“As a brand, Bounty wants their consumers to be creative and hands-on in hopes that it will lead to innovation,” said Dave Lee, P&G brand manager, Bounty. “By providing the students of Hughes STEM High School real work experience we are taking a first look at those who could pilot future innovations for our brand and continue our mission to ‘bring it’ in everything that they do.”

Hughes STEM High School is a special high school offering a new approach to education in Cincinnati, OH. The school offers innovative programs and promotes economic progress by providing students with the knowledge and skills they need to pursue future educational opportunities and STEM careers.

“Bounty has been an essential member of our community at Hughes STEM High School for the past three years,” said Cliff Carter, Hughes STEM teacher. “This year we have more students participating then in years past and that is due to their dedication in creativity and innovation which helps sparks our student’s interests.”
