Bayer CropScience Commits to Future of Illinois Agriculture, Education and Communities
Date:8/26/2013

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

It’s said that the two best gifts are roots and wings, and in the coming weeks, Bayer CropScience will contribute both to Illinois communities by sponsoring “Making Science Make Sense®” for middle school students, helping children make healthy lunch decisions by donating salad bars to schools and beautifying communities by giving trees to local service organizations.

First, Bayer offered budding scientists the wings of inspiration when it kicked off its 2013 Farm Progress Show activities today in Decatur, Ill., with a visit to students at Jefferson Middle School in Champaign as a part of its national, award-winning “Making Science Make Sense” curriculum. Bayer CropScience volunteers helped students conduct hands-on science experiments to stir to action the next generation of innovators and support science literacy.

Making Science Make Sense
More than 40 years ago, Making Science Make Sense was born when Bayer volunteers began helping teachers and students embrace science the way scientists do—by putting it into action. Today, in Bayer site communities across the country, more than 1,000 volunteers work to foster science literacy and ignite student interest in science.

“Science is an integral part of our everyday lives, and we want to show students that science learning is not only fun, but can also open doors to endless educational and career possibilities for bright young minds,” said Russell Jones, Fellow, environmental safety, Bayer CropScience and a Making Science Make Sense volunteer. “We’re putting textbooks aside for the morning and providing hands-on, visual learning
