Making Science Make Sense

Partnered with:


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 ‘Making science make sense’ (MSMS) partners are dedicated to changing the way science is taught and learned both in and out of the classroom. It’s about making science more accessible and less intimidating – to children and adults.

In response, OUCRU Public and Community Engagement Department partnered with Bayer Vietnam, develop an intervention by informal learning to promote science in primary schools. We designed a project which aims to provide opportunities for school children to access and enjoy science. Particularly in those living in provinces, many Vietnamese children have limited spaces to interact with science and hands-on science activities in an engaging and effective way.

Key Milestones / Activities

Science activity packs for schools

OUCRU worked with scientists to develop hands-on science activity packs for teachers and primary school students. There was also training to design activities on participatory teaching methods and how to use the school science packs to organise science clubs for teachers. 


Science Clubs

Schools ran science clubs for a period of 3-4 months for students aged 10-12. These activities would take place at schools every week. The teachers would carry out the clubs’ activities plus additional support from young ambassadors of OUCRU. 





Fanpage Khoa Hoc Truong Hoc

  • To improve students’ science literacy and inspire them to learn science more by bringing science knowledge closer to them in engaging ways
  • To connect scientists and students and support them to develop a mutual understanding of science

All science content was initially written by scientists but then edited by members of OUCRU Science Media Youth Working Group (YWG), including school children and university students.

The YWG worked to ensure that the content on the fanpage has the right language for young people, using several engaging formats such as comics, podcasts, infographics, and explainer videos, to name a few.

Other than the main fanpage Khoa Học Trường Học, we also promoted all this fascinating science content through school and public events.
