Inspiring the next generation
at Lark Hill Primary School, Stockport

Pupils at Lark Hill Primary School in Stockport will be taking part in a week filled with experiences and experiments, supported by a team of volunteers from BASF, the world’s largest chemical company.

From 14 -18 March, as part of British Science Week, pupils will get to see that science goes beyond just what happens in a laboratory – it is in everything that they touch, see and feel in their everyday lives. Highlights include learning how drones are used to support crop production on farms, combining chemistry and chocolate to make their own mousse and an indoor planetarium.

Employees from BASF’s UK headquarters in Stockport are supporting the week of activities to stimulate an interest in science and foster curiosity and creativity.

“We are very excited to be working with the teachers, pupils and parents at Lark Hill to give the children a memorable week that will inspire them to be inquisitive and better appreciate science. We want to ignite their imaginations and ultimately encourage them to study STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) at secondary school and beyond,” said Nicole Baker-Tunney, one of the BASF volunteers. “This is the start of our support for Lark Hill Primary School, and our support for science education going forward.”
