Bayer USA Foundation Supports Summer Science Education Programs in Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Houston and Tyler, Texas
Date:7/1/2008

Teacher, Student Programs Focus on Sustainability, Diversity

PITTSBURGH, July 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- High school "green" chemistry and diversity/workforce development in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields are the focus of two innovative programs for teachers and students that the Bayer USA Foundation is sponsoring this summer in four cities within the United States.

The two programs -- Green Chemistry High School Teacher Workshops and Project SEED -- are initiatives of the American Chemical Society (ACS). A recent Bayer USA Foundation grant is enabling ACS to establish the programs in Pittsburgh, Houston, Raleigh, N.C., and Tyler, Texas.

The Bayer USA Foundation's support of these programs reflects Bayer Corporation's continued commitment to science education/science literacy, sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR). This commitment is evident in the company's award-winning Making Science Make Sense(R) program, as well as in the number of green policies, processes and technologies Bayer continues to develop to lower greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy efficiency and reduce overall consumption of natural resources.

"With these two key programs, the ACS is providing leading-edge educational opportunities in key areas that are both important to Bayer and among the most urgent for the country to begin addressing," said Dr. Attila Molnar, President and CEO, Bayer Corporation, and President, Bayer USA Foundation.

Green Chemistry High School Workshops (Pittsburgh, Raleigh)

Green chemistry is one of these areas. Through the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use and generation of hazardous substances, green chemistry provides the scientific underpinning for achieving sustainability by developing environmentally-friendly ways to produce everyday goods.

The workshops will take place in Pittsburgh at Duquesne University from July
