Jakarta (12/07) – Unusual atmosphere took place in the lobby of PT SOHO Industri Pharmasi, Jl Pulogadung No.6. The crowd of children aged 5-10 years gracing the Junior Scientists SOHO event. Some kids were busy discussing, read books, sing yells, and there were also kids happily selfies and making jokes while waiting for the start of the program at 9am sharp.
On July 4 and July 11, 2019 for the first time SOHO held a Junior Scientists event as part of PT SOHO Global Health's CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) program. The event, which was initiated and held for the first time in 2019, is intended to make the use of school holidays for children with educative activities. This first opportunity was dedicated to SOHO employees who enthusiastically welcome this program. The registration was filled up quickly so that the event was attended by 40 participants (divided into 2 batches).
The program which is planned to be held annually aims to provide education about the world of science through various scientific activities in the R & D laboratory. "We hope children will experience for themselves how exciting the world of science is. SCIENCE is FUN, "said DR. Raphael Aswin, VP of R & D SOHO Global Health in his remarks which at the same time opened this Junior Scientists event.
In his remarks Dr. Aswin teaches the importance of science in everyday life and especially science for our health. "The junior scientists here need to imagine living without lights, without refrigerators, and the scariest ... without cellphones, and without medicine when we are sick," explained Dr. Aswin to all children who participated in Junior Scientists batch 1 and 2.
The program then continued with a series of exciting activities in the R & D lab through a lab touring session in the grey area where children wore lab overalls and watched the making of Fitkom tablets, then the activity continued in the Sensory Lab where children were introduced to various flavors and colors by our R & D scientists who are very patient in guiding children.
The event break between lab sessions and non-lab sessions was filled with snack time and drinking Curcuma Plus milk which turned out to be very popular among participants because it tastes very good. Not a few children add more and more Curcuma Plus milk. After snack time, the children continue the non-lab activities that are not less exciting. The most awaited "syrup making" and "bubble making" activities of the children took place with great fun. The children took home their own Curcuma Plus syrup made and were proud of their masterpiece. The next exciting activity is Fun Coloring with FITKOM. Almost all girls love Flo, the most beautiful and helpful Fitkom Ranger, while boys idolize the super smart Fin and the super strong Fred.
Science education from an early age is indeed very important to form a habit of curious mindset in children, so that after adulthood will create a strong and smart generation. It is our humble pride if after participating in this Junior Scientists children go home with big dreams to become "real scientists" when they grow up
