HCM CITY (VNS) — More than 500 primary school students and disadvantaged children from charity shelters are taking part in a chemistry education programme called BASF Kids' Lad that opened yesterday at the HCM City Exhibition Centre.
The interactive and fun programme is designed to help children learn from an early age about how chemistry can help improve the quality of life and conserve natural resources.
Participants explore which daily foods contain Vitamin C and learn how it can help prevent cold or flu by boosting the human immune system.
The programme, which has been hosted in more than 30 countries and territories by giant German chemical company BASF, has enabled around 1,500 children in Viet Nam to perform hands-on experiments in the last three years. — VNS
