Hands-on Science

At most museums or exhibitions, the visitors are warned “Do not touch,” but on the Bayer tour that rule does not apply. On the contrary, the exhibits – cells, transparent screens, both analog and digital games and much more besides – are designed specifically to be touched and tried out. The innovative exhibition concept combines entertaining and informative elements that encourage visitors to interact with the displays.

The Letters on the Exhibit Boxes Combine to Spell out Bayer's Mission, "Science For a Better Life"

  • Since 2016 the brand new selfie box is a real highlight of the exhibition. This young boy had a lot fun with it at the “International Children’s Lifestyle Expo” in Shanghai.
  • The tour is perfect for families with children of any age. This family at the EXPO Hecho en Alemania in Mexico City loved the interactive letters.
Since 2016 the brand new selfie box is a real highlight of the exhibition. This young boy had a lot fun with it at the “International Children’s Lifestyle Expo” in Shanghai.

The exhibits comprise 21 approximately two-meter-high informative boxes with capital letters, each of which refers to a Bayer topic, from A for “Aspirin™” and E for “Enhancing Global Food Security” through to S for “Science.”

Each box contains images and informational text on the scientific background and social aspects of the Bayer topic in question. Visitors are also invited to experiment and test their scientific skills. For example, they can go up against the clock fighting insect pests and weeds with Bayer products in a buzzer quiz, or insert the right building blocks into the DNA of wheat to block the plant's stress gene and make it more robust. Thus, the scientific exhibition becomes an exciting, thrilling and rich excursion for kids and adults.

Exhibition for Extracurricular Education and Excursions

The scientific exhibition “Science For A Better Life” offers school kids and high schools in particular an extracurricular activity offering exciting and interesting chances to discover natural sciences, biology or applied chemistry, try out something new, understand scientific relationships and consolidate knowledge learned in school. Sensational experiments bring theory to life. All in all, a revealing educational excursion!
