BASF Kids' Lab in Taiwan
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.
The program came to Taiwan in 2007 and has benefitted more than 13,000 children. Since 2012, BASF Taiwan has been organizing the Kids’ Lab program at remote schools, and focusing in areas where there are less opportunities for students to actively participate in the science subjects..
For the programs held in the summer at science museums, children have a chance to visit the BASF Kids’ Farm following the Kids' Lab. The BASF Kids' Farm was initiated by BASF Taiwan employees of AgSolution Farm Pingtung in 2010. Our employees guide children to learn about plant diseases, insects, and weeds that farmers have to tackle when growing rice and fruit. BASF’s Kids’ Farm provides children a great opportunity to understand the hard work of farmers and the value of food resources, and therefore the importance of cherishing the food on their dining tables.
