HCM CITY — Online platform BASF Virtual Lab has introduced three additional chemistry experiments in Vietnamese, allowing primary students to do a variety of interactive chemistry experiments online.
The three new experiments are: “Plastic Pros”, “Sweet Bread” and “Rust protection for food.”
Through the “Plastic Pro” experiment, children will learn about the different properties of plastics, including how to separate plastic waste, a major step in the recycling process.
The “Sweet Bread” experiment aims to help children learn about enzymatic degradation as well as various nutrients contained in daily food.
The "Rust protection for food” experiment explains how ascorbic acid or vitamin C, a popular substance contained in our daily fruits and vegetables, can help preserve food and keep people healthy, owing to its antioxidant properties.
The company donated 20 computer sets to help students of Tân Hưng Primary School in HCM City's District 7 conduct the fun experiments online, develop their computer skills.
“In partnership with the HCM City Department of Education and Training, we have introduced BASF Virtual Lab products to Vietnamese students since 2018. This is part of an education programme called “BASF Kids’ Lab” that has been active in the country since 2011,” said Erick Contreras, managing director of BASF Vietnam.
“We are very pleased that a total of 10 online experiments in Vietnamese language have been offered to the country’s next-generation which will help develop their passion for chemistry,” Erick said.
