At Bayer, we are committed to providing one million hands-on science learning experiences to children by 2020. On Friday April 8, over 115 fifth grade students from Helena Elementary School were invited to the RTP site where they were introduced to the importance of science-based learning through Making Science Make Sense activities and tours of the greenhouse and Bee Care Center.

Check out some of the photos below from their visit!
