For the third consecutive year BASF Canada is contributing to the science curriculum of Christ The King and Georgetown and District High Schools by donating an innovative video series called Science Screen Report (produced by Allegro Productions). Science Screen Report consists of a series of educational videotapes intended for high schools. It brings current information on topics related to science, engineering, medicine, technology, conservation and the environment into classrooms. "The videos are excellent, containing the most current information, and fitting very well into our curriculum," said Doug McCallion, head of the Science Department at Christ the King High School. "Our students are having their eyes opened to the application of science." Donna Norrie, head of the Science Department of Georgetown District High School added, "The videos provide just the right amount of information for students who really need to be able to draw connections between theory and real life. BASF has given us an excellent resource for the classroom." "The Science Screen Report video series will help students of local schools form an appreciation for science by providing an extra learning tool," said Steve Ransome, site manager for BASF's Georgetown Site. "BASF Canada is committed to science literacy and education, and, as such, we are proud to play an active role in the communities in which we live and do business. This is an important part of our on-going program to reach to the community as a Responsible Care Company." BASF's Georgetown site supplies the animal nutrition industry with a variety of blended products (vitamins, minerals, enzymes) used to produce better feed and pet foods. These blends are produced according to customer-defined recipes. Approximately video series from BASF's 15 people are employed at the site.
