Getting a million children interested in science by 2020 – that’s the clear goal of the Bayer program “Making Science Make Sense”. Everyone can all get involved in this campaign and inspire children to be passionate about science.
The recipe for the success of “Making Science Make Sense” is as simple as it is effective: Bayer employees take time out to visit schools, armed with hands-on science such as experiments that schoolchildren can try out themselves and that make them want to understand the science behind them.
The program was initiated in 1995 by volunteer Bayer employees. Today, 20 years later, more than 100 employees in the United States are involved in the project, inspiring the next inquisitive generation.
And because of the excellent and ongoing success in the United States, similar programs were also introduced in other countries. In Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Japan, India, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and the United Kingdom, Bayer employees are getting schoolchildren excited about scientific phenomena in day-to-day life in a whole range of ways.
