Covestro Taiwan announced today that its Grandparent-Grandchild science camp received the Honorable Mention Award from the distinguished US-based PR News Global CSR & Diversity Awards. The company also announced that its 2021 Grandparent-Grandchild science summer camp, which partners with Professor Liang-Rong Hsu of National Taichung Education University, the Department of Social Affairs of Keelung City Government, Generations Fun Center, the Department of Social Affairs of Changhua County Government, Changhua Youth and Child Welfare Service Center and the National Science and Technology Museum, Covestro with the theme of “Grandpa's Secret Garden” will be postponed to next year due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. However, Covestro also announces today that it plans to launch an online STEM website to encourage family members to do science experiments and learn together.
With diversity and inclusion at the heart of Covestro’s working culture, Covestro had developed two CSR initiatives from these concepts: the first series, the “Magic Material School”, which is designed for hearing impaired students, aims to ignite children’s curiosity in science, and to lead children to respect other through realizing that everyone has unlimited possibilities. The second initiative is the 2021 PR News Global CSR & Diversity Honorable Mention Award winner, the “Grandparent-Grandchild Science Camp”, a project which aims to shorten the distance between grandparents and grandchildren, as well as to encourage lifelong learning.
“It is a great honor for Covestro to receive the Honorable Mention Award of the distinguished US-based PR News Global CSR & Diversity Awards, alongside other renowned units and companies. We also appreciate our various partners for making the ‘Grandparent-Grandchild Science Camp’ so successful,” said Michael Lee, Managing Director of Covestro Taiwan. “Due to consideration of the pandemic, we have to suspend the ‘Grandparent-Grandchild Science Camp’, with ‘Grandpa's Secret Garden’ as the 2021 theme, to next year. However, we still expect to encourage family members to learn and play with science together while staying at home, via the STEM website we plan to launch this summer.” More information will be released when the website is ready.
