BASF invites local classrooms to celebrate National Chemistry Week at ROM


MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 28, 2024 /CNW/ - BASF and the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) are partnering to offer schools in the greater Toronto area (GTA) the opportunity to participate in an exclusive BASF Kids' Lab at ROM. BASF's Kids' Lab is the signature STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math) program for youth ages 4 to 12, designed to provide a fun, hands-on learning environment that connects chemistry with the world around us.

 The BASF Kids' Lab School Nomination Program will offer BASF and ROM employees and partners, as well as museum visitors and educators in the GTA, the opportunity to nominate classrooms and schools to access a full-day field trip to ROM during National Chemistry Week, taking place the week of October 20th, 2024.

"More than 650 students participated in our first National Chemistry Week activities at ROM last year," said Apala Mukherjee, President of BASF Canada. "This year, we are excited to hear which classrooms would benefit the most from a visit to ROM and participation in BASF Kids' Lab."

"For young students interested in chemistry, there are few things more exciting than learning the subject at ROM ? a museum with the largest natural history collection in Canada, and some of the country's greatest scientists," says Josh Basseches, ROM Director & CEO.

As part of BASF and ROM's three-year partnership, BASF offers a Chemistry Week celebration for students at ROM, which includes a full-day visit to the museum and a 30-minute guided lesson with a ROM educator in the galleries. Students also have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive BASF Kids' Lab experiment to explore the wonders of chemistry through "The Rainbow Connection." This lab focuses on the chromatographic process and separation of the components of colourful felt-tip pens using white chalk and water.  

To ensure the program aligns with the school curriculum, the nomination campaign is exclusively open to 3rd and 4th-grade classrooms from schools in the GTA. A panel of BASF and ROM representatives will review the nominations. Five schools will be chosen from the nominations received, and each selected school will receive a full-day field trip for two classrooms. Consideration will be taken for underrepresented schools with diverse populations and schools with multiple nominations.

Individuals are invited to submit one nomination per person using this form from May 28, 2024, at 12:00 a.m. to Wednesday, July 31, 2024, at 11:59 p.m.
