approximately 25,500 students per year (1st to 6th grade) + 4,500 students from agro-technical schools
- Thematic Focus:
Children can learn and understand sciences much better when knowledge is linked to experience. Therefore, the Baylab initiative supports Argentine teachers with kits for science experiments , so they can conduct instructional experiments with their pupils. Kits for children from 1st to 6th grade make focus on Science, Agricultural and Health education. Meanwhile Kits for secondary agro-technical schools are focused on Earth Science (soil, atmosphere and biosphere). In addition to materials, Bayer provides teachers with advice in carrying out these experiment-based lessons promoting education through inquiry and STEAM education.
Since mid-2018 Baylab Argentina is also present in a Science Museum (Buenos Aires) with open and free workshops called “Food and DNA”. These workshops will continue in 2019 with 4 sessions per month.
- Background and History:
Baylab Argentina is the first and only Baylab on the South American continent.
