BASF Philippines turns 55 this year — and it wants to celebrate with kids by throwing them the most amazing chemistry party ever!
On October 19, BASF will officially launch the Kids’ Lab at The Mind Museum, BGC, Taguig, Manila. Kids’ Lab is the company’s long-running corporate citizenship program. This fun-filled activity gives primary school-aged children the opportunity to perform simple and safe chemistry experiments. Through this interactive learning experience, the company aims to develop an appreciation for science and chemistry in children, even at a young age.
The theme for this year’s Kids’ Lab experiments at The Mind Museum will be Clever Foodies. Clever Foodies is a series of experiments that draw attention to the value of vitamins in having a balanced diet and ensuring good nutrition. The company developed the Clever Foodies theme in 2017 to honor the Kids’ Lab initiative’s 20th year.
To celebrate the launch of Kids’ Lab, the company invited select schools from Taguig City, Gawad Kalinga communities, and its partners to participate in the event. After finishing the Kids’ Lab experiments, the children will also be able to go around the musuem following the launch, free of charge. This includes being able to play with the BASF Chemical Reactions touch table, which was just installed at the museum’s Atom Gallery last September.
