What is Making Science Make Sense

Bayer’s Making Science Make Sense® is a company-wide initiative that aims to advance science literacy through hands-on, inquiry-based science learning, employee volunteerism and public education. The program provides school students with an insight into everyday natural science phenomena with the help of all kinds of fascinating experiments.

Why this commitment to science education? As a Life Science company, Bayer has its foundation in science and innovation. This gives Bayer a unique understanding of the integral role science plays in everyday life. Bayer and its MSMS partners are dedicated to changing the way science is taught and learned both in and out of the classroom. At Bayer, it's about making science more accessible and less intimidating – to kids and adults.

The recipe for the success of "Making Science Make Sense" is as simple as it is effective: Bayer employees take time out to visit schools, armed with hands-on science such as experiments that school children can try out themselves and that make them want to understand the science behind them. Together with a knowledge partner, the company has designed the program in a specific way that includes live demonstrations, experiments, audio-visual tools and interactive sessions to enhance the learning experience and make sure that science is taught in a way that's enjoyable and fun.

Globally, the program was initiated in 1995 in the United States by volunteer Bayer employees. Today, the program is extended to countries across the globe like Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Japan, India, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

In India, the Making Science Make Sense program has been able to inspire a large number of students and inculcate in them the love for science. Over 75,000 students have already benefited from the program since 2007, across the country including cities like Mumbai, Ankleshwar, Vapi and Himatnagar.
