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.
Henkel’s Forscherwelt Science Lab for children now open at the German Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai
Science workshops where kids between the ages of 7 and 11 years of age can have fun through experiments and get a playful introduction to science, are now open at the German Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. Researchers’ World or ‘Forscherwelt’ in German, is located at CAMPUS GERMANY and is part of an international initiative launched by Henkel, the German FMCG company, over 10 years ago to get children excited about science and awaken their researcher’s spirit.
10 Years “Henkel Forscherwelt”
Getting children excited about science and awakening their researcher’s spirit – with this in mind, Henkel founded the “Forscherwelt” (Researchers’ World) ten years ago. In April 2011, the first Forscherwelt vacation course was held at the Henkel site in Düsseldorf. Since then, around 62,000 elementary school children took part in Forscherwelt classes in a total of 13 countries. The joint motto: "being like a researcher".
