Five years of Henkel’s Forscherwelt

Stimulating children’s spirit of discovery and passion for research: That is the goal of Henkel’s Forscherwelt (Researchers’ World). The international education initiative, which was launched at the company’s headquarters in Düsseldorf, Germany, in 2011, is looking back at five successful years. Around 9,700 children have already taken part in the initiative around the world, discovering scientific secrets by conducting over 33,000 experiments. The program offers classes for elementary schools as well as holiday courses. Since 2014, children in Argentina, Russia, Ireland and Turkey have also had the chance to turn into little researchers in various projects.

Each year, around 8 million individual metal parts are produced at the Husqvarna Group’s hometown location in Sweden for its premium outdoor power tools, which include chainsaws and trimmers. To ensure that both productivity targets and a safe and healthy environment for its workforce are achieved, the Group turned to Henkel’s new generation bactericide-free cutting fluids to provide a smart solution to an increasing bacteria and odor problem during machining. Three years on, the team at Husqvarna endorses Bonderite L-MR as a major sustainability tool for the metal industry.
