Purpose of Establishment
Cooperating with Professor Steve Hsu from the Department of Science Education and Application of National Taichung University of Education in Taiwan, who has also been a science education consultant for Covestro, we have created “Covestro MagicMaterial School Online Lab”. It changes the traditional learning environment and materials, with children aged six to twelve as our target group. With a clear and simple style to make the three categories of experiments that were found in “Covestro MagicMaterial” before into online materials, including “Magical Creatures: Create your own pet”, “Magic Pharmacy: Formulate potion with magical power” and “Deformation: Hide and seek”, guiding children to explore the “How” and “Why” of science. Meanwhile this Online Lab is set up with a message board for discussion, through the interaction of questioning and sharing, this provides a creative communication platform for each child. In addition, when parents accompany kids to complete these experiments, it will simultaneously create opportunities for parents and children to learn together and encourage them to cultivate children’s enthusiasm for learning autonomously!
The aim of science education isn’t to cultivate scientists, but to cultivate citizens with basic scientific literacy who can adapt to the future of technological society. Through “Covestro MagicMaterial School Online Lab”, we hope to lead children into "scientific thinking mode", and to gradually develop the ability to discover, think, and solve problems.
