BASF Kids' Lab in Asia Pacific

Do you know kids’ most popular reaction to chemistry? It’s “Wow!” - one simple word with great scientific experience behind it. We’ve heard it many times, in more than 30 countries, at BASF Kids’ Lab. For one day, kids become scientists. They experiment in a playful manner and learn why and how the world’s marvels work. Because we believe that one day these kids will wow us in return.

When science can be seen as a foundation of wonder, it’s because at BASF, we create chemistry.

BASF established Kids’ Lab in Germany in 1997 with an aim to nurture kids' interest in chemistry. It is a free interactive education program for kids aged 6-12 years to discover the world of chemistry through safe and fun experiments.

The program has been brought to more than 30 countries across the globe, including U.K., U.S., Australia, China, India, Japan, Korea and Singapore. In Asia Pacific, more than 300,000 kids have participated since 2002.

20th anniversary Kids' Lab

In 2016, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Kids' Lab, BASF hosted “Clever Foodies” experimentation program across the globe. 

The planet's resources are limited but the world’s population and its needs, particularly in Urban Living, Energy and Food, keep growing.

How can chemistry help?

Chemistry helps to enrich our daily lives, but its contribution is often overlooked.

The Creating Chemistry magazine aims to show how chemistry plays a role to meet global challenges.
