About Making Science Make Sense in Morristown
Making Science Make Sense (MSMS) is a company-wide initiative designed to advance science literacy through hands-on, inquiry-based science learning, employee volunteerism and public education. The Bayer Consumer Care site in Morristown, NJ is one of 12 company locations throughout the country that offer local MSMS programs, which together feature a national volunteer corps of more than 1,000 employees.
Over the past several years, Bayer Consumer Care scientists have worked side by side with teachers in school districts including Dover, Cedar Knolls, Chester, Hanover, Morristown, Roxbury and Whippany. In 2006, more than 250 third graders at North Dover Elementary School and Academy Elementary School in Dover, N.J. put their science textbooks aside for a special hands-on lesson in mixing and solutions from MSMS volunteers. When they are not conducting experiments in the classroom, Bayer volunteers serve as judges at school science fairs and speak at Career Day events.
With a strong commitment to science education, Bayer Consumer Care has
also sponsored the Morris Museum's Outreach Program since 2000. This
program brings science, history and art programs to students across NJ to
children who are unable to attend the Museum. The museum's outreach
educator engages children in discussion, easy-to-handle objects and
activities that support classroom science curriculums. For the past five
years, Bayer has also sponsored the Morris Museum's Portable Planetarium
program, which travels to almost 100 schools in Northern and Central New
