Forscherwelt or "Researchers‘ World" is an international education initiative. It focuses on how to apply scientific methods including critical testing, analysis, interpretation of data, science, and, of course, creativity. Through specific learning objectives, children can gain insight into the process of scientific inquiry. The classes in Forscherwelt are based on research areas that Henkel is active in, such as gluing, washing, personal care and sustainability. The latter involves teaching children how to save energy, recycle paper, use renewable raw materials and information about general health.

Over 1000 children using recycled materials to enter Henkel’s Forscherwelt Science Lab school competition at Expo 2020 Dubai
Over 1000 school children across Dubai between the ages of 7 and 11 are preparing their entries for the Forscherwelt Science Lab competition, designed exclusively for Expo 2020 Dubai. Thirteen of Dubai’s leading schools have signed up to the free competition with their eager science students creating something out of recycled materials that is both innovative and serves a practical purpose at their school. The winning entries will be awarded at the German Pavilion during a judging and recognition event in March.
