Some children start learning other languages as early as pre-school – because the earlier their talents are encouraged, the better. Bayer too has embraced this basic principle, and promotes science in schools. Some of our numerous projects around the world have since won awards and taken on model character.
At Bayer, the sponsorship of school education in Germany is based on three pillars. The Bayer Foundation's school support program specifically assists schools near the company’s German sites in their efforts to make instruction in science and medicine more attractive through innovative projects. The BayLabs student laboratories enable school students to independently conduct exciting experiments in the areas of health, plants and the environment under professional supervision and thus gain hands-on experience of practical science. As well as organizing its own technology competition for schools, Bayer has also been a partner for many years to student competitions as “Jugend forscht”, the International Biology Olympiad and the International Chemistry Olympiad in North-Rhine Westphalia.
