For her Science Fair project at Good Shepherd, Ellie Mackintosh invented “Simply Mouthwatering” a gel that helps people who suffer from dry mouth. She was inspired by her father, who survived head and neck cancer, but his salivary glands were permanently damaged by radiation. Ellie won her school’s science fair, then went on to win regionals and state, and recently discovered she’s one of 300 national semifinalists! So she could soon be heading to Washington DC!  Way to go Ellie! She’s one of Colorado’s Best Kids!
