Science For A Better Life Tour Gallery

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"

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.

Even the smallest children are fascinated by the exhibition.
