BASF Kids' Lab


With the belief that students today can become innovators and leaders of tomorrow, BASF established Kids' Lab in Germany in 1997 with the aim to nurture children's interest in chemistry; and to help young generation recognize how chemistry around us can help protect the environment and create a sustainable future.

The BASF Kids' Lab program is an interactive, fun and free chemistry education program designed for kids aged 6 to 12 years to discover the world of chemistry through simple and safe experiments.

This program has been brought to more than 30 countries across the globe. It was introduced in India in 2004, and since then over 50,000 kids from schools across India have experienced BASF Kids' Lab first hand.


BASF Kids’ Lab has also been organized with various schools and science museums and has been part of the Science Express (in 2008), a high-end science exhibition, jointly organized by the Government of India (Department of Science & Technology) and the Government of Germany in association with the Max Planck Society.

BASF Kids’ Lab aboard the Science Express was featured in the Limca Book of Records for being the first mobile lab to have over 15,000 students performing experiments.

BASF Kids' Lab was an integral part of company's exhibits at the Indo-German Urban Mela. It focused on water-related experiments to explain the role of chemistryin water purification and water quality enhancement.
