Team-up for Science

BASF Polska and Warsaw’s Copernicus Science Center signed an agreement April 8 under which the Polish division of the global chemical company will continue to be the exclusive partner of the center’s chemistry lab for six more years.

Under the team-up, groups of school students supervised by qualified instructors can come to the chemistry lab to carry out experiments—for example make soap or polystyrene balls to find out about the basic laws of chemistry governing plastics. A total of 10,000 school students have taken advantage of this opportunity each year.

BASF Polska and the Copernicus Science Center have organized a number of other educational projects and events aiming to promote chemistry. Joint initiatives have included Chemistry Days, a Science Picnic, and collaboration as part of the FameLab competition targeted at young scientists.

BASF operates three production plants in Poland making chemicals, plastics, pesticides and automotive paint.

BASF employs more than 540 workers in Poland, and the group’s sales in this country in 2014 totaled 770 million euros.

Warsaw’s Copernicus Science Center, which opened in 2011, is one of the largest and most modern science museums in Europe.
