Education: explaining chemistry

Children discover the world of chemistry thanks to Arkema

Arkema is working closely with the world of education and supports schools educationally in explaining the role of chemistry in daily life.

Meeting the youngest

Fondation C.Génial

C.Génial

In June 2016, Arkema signed a three-year partnership agreement with Fondation C.Génial. The Group brings its support to this association which raises the profile of science with high school students and endeavors to boost scientific literacy in France. Fondation C.Génial organizes flagship operations, in particular Professeurs en entreprises [Teachers in business and industry], Ingénieurs et techniciens dans les classes [Engineers and technicians in the classroom], as well as the C.Génial Competition.

Arkema ChemArt Green Innovation Class

The Arkema ChemArt Green Innovation Class is an educational program launched in 2015. At two primary schools, sixty employee volunteers led fun chemistry activities, including the Noah's Ark made of PMMA and creative workshops, teaching students about current and future environmental challenges.

"The idea is to help foster civic awareness while stimulating the students' creativity through play", comments Daria Gong, External Communications Manager. Local plants also loaned their skills — in foreign languages and IT, for example — to the schools, which were chosen for a specific reason. "Many students have a parent employed at one of our plants. The children are proud to see their parents in the classroom", says Daria Gong. The program is being expanded to other Chinese schools in 2017.

Close ties with educational institutions

Arkema maintains a close relationship with the best educational institutions in the world for its fields of activity.

France

  • Arkema participates in events organized by general and chemical engineering schools.
  • The Group provides financial backing to Fondation ENSIC (École nationale supérieure des industries chimiques de Nancy). Since this support initiative was set up in October 2008, some forty engineering undergraduates in financial difficulty have been able to access the courses provided by the school.

United-States

  • The Developing Engineer Program enables Arkema each year to recruit four to six engineering school students from the best American universities. These students take part in concrete training programs on industrial sites over a five year period.
  • The Science Teachers Program takes place on some sites of Arkema in the US. Elementary school and secondary school teachers are invited and trained to teach scientific topics and chemistry in a fun and captivating way!
