Bayer CropScience participates in Sacramento STEM Fair

Bayer CropScience sponsored and participated in the 2015 Synopsys Sacramento Regional Science and Engineering Fair on Saturday, as part of the company’s commitment to advancing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

“At Bayer CropScience, we are dedicated to helping educate young people about the importance of science literacy,” Bayer CropScience R&D specialist Sarah Demshar said. “Through participation in the 2015 Sacramento STEM Fair, our Making Science Make Sense team hopes to have inspired the students to further pursue a STEM-based career that will enable them to develop innovative solutions to some of the world’s most complex problems.”

The fair featured hundreds of students competing in middle and high school divisions for awards and prizes while displaying projects on topics such as advanced solar energy processes and Ebola research.

The Bayer CropScience Making Science Make Sense volunteers presented a booth featuring an interactive strawberry DNA extraction experiment that demonstrated how Bayer employees use science to develop sustainable agriculture practices.

“Seeing all of our region’s students come together in this wonderful celebration of science, technology, engineering and math was awe inspiring,” fair director Michele Hastie said. “We are delighted with the growth we have seen in this year’s event, including support from additional sponsors such as Bayer CropScience.”
