Make Science Make Sense

Volunteers from Bayer Corporation partnered with the Batch Foundation for their Day of Caring today. They facilitated a STEAM program called "Make Science Make Sense” with the 4th grade students at Barrett Elementary.

The students learned about being a doctor. They talked about what Radiology is, what Bayer does, and the products they make. They got to play “doctor” and diagnose different MRI, PET, and CT scans of diseases and injuries.

Students then made slime and talked about polymers. This was related this back to why plastics engineering is important when Bayer builds the syringes for our injectors.

They then looked at GloGerm! This experiment demonstrated how bacteria can be spread and why proper hand washing is important. Students talked about why sterility is important when Bayer makes disposable products.

Last, students made Alka Rockets! This experiment was just to have a little fun with one of Bayer’s products. The students created “rockets” out of film canisters and construction paper. They then “launched” them in Bayers rocket launcher by combining water and alka seltzer tablets in the canister.
