KUSA - A semifinalist in the National Science Fair from George Washington High School showed off her invention: mouthwash that sparks salivation for a dry mouth.
Ellie Mackintosh calls it Simply Mouth-Watering. Out of 6,000 kids who participated in the statewide science fair, Elli made it to the top 300 in the National Science Fair. On Tuesday, she finds out if she's a finalist.
Her father had neck cancer when she was a toddler, which was her inspiration for the product.
Ellie has been recognized by the Colorado Dental Association. Ellie also plans to speak before the Colorado Medical Society at their annual conference in September.
