BASF Kids' Lab

Sydney’s ‘future scientists’ get their first taste of chemistry at 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. In Australia we conduct the annual program together with Monash University in Melbourne and Curtin University in Perth. In New Zealand we partner with the University of Auckland.
