Workshops

We are proud to announce that BASF Italy participates to ELEMENTS programming with workshops for school with "WATER LOVES CHEMISTRY", structured as follows:

  •  "Water Purification": participants start with the "production" of dirty water and then remove dissolved solids and particles. The experiment teaches - in a fun way - how the wastewater is purified in dedicated machinery. 
  • ​"Water Storage": participants prove the water storage capacity of a mixture of particles  of superabsorbent polymers and sand. They learn that superabsorbent polymers can store their weight many times in water and understand how this property is used in different fields of application. 
  • "Water Research": participants produce a solution of water and sugar and build a new "tower of density" to observe how the behavior of some plastic spheres vary depending on the density of the solution.
