About Dow Chemistry Class Project

Dow Thailand Group is determined to bolster science knowledge among the youth by collaborating with Chemical Society of Thailand under the Royal Patronage of Prof. Dr. H.R.H. Princess Chulabhorn Walailak. “Dow Chemistry Class” project was initiated with the intention to support chemistry class at schools through the use of a small-scale chemistry laboratory technique which is an effective and safe experiment method that simplifies chemical experiment while reducing chemical wastes. Students can obtain a hands-on experience from conducting the experiments themselves not just listening from the lectures. “Dow Chemistry Class” project aims to enhance teachers and students’ capability through science study, particularly chemistry, with a small-scale chemistry laboratory technique. The method is recognized by UNESCO and practiced internationally in chemistry classes around the world including the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Mexico, the Philippines, Japan, China, and Cambodia. This is considered to be the first time that the private sector has concretely adopted a small-scale chemistry laboratory method for Thai educational system.
