Kids' Lab Turkey
Based on BASF's mission "We create chemistry for a sustainable future", BASF Kids' Lab is a global social responsibility project implemented to endear kids to chemistry and science.
It is a free event which allows 6-12 age group kids to conduct experiments about chemistry and science, and reached worldwide 1.2 millon kids since 1997. The project started its activities in Turkey in 2011 in various shopping malls and in the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art. In addition to the schools, workshops have been also organised for non-governmental organizations such as Darüşşafaka, LÖSEV. The experiments, which are designed to create sustainability awareness, are conducted under supervision of trainers and as of today the project reached 40.000 kids in Turkey.
In 2012, BASF Türkiye was rewarded with the "Corporate Social Responsibility Societal Influence Applications Award" for the Kids' Lab project. The project also advanced to finals in the European Excellence Awards and the Sabre Awards which hosted awards for global public relations projects.
