SPARK - Igniting a Passion for Life Science
The SPARK Global Volunteer Event is specifically designed to focus on giving back through science education and skills-based volunteering, which simply means volunteering using one's professional or everyday work skills. As a company, we have have a workforce with a valuable skills that can be shared with our communities and the young scientists of the furutre to help drive curiosity. Science education isn't what it once was. Due to changes in education policy globally, science education for most students no longer includes hands on labs or the ability to connect to careers and professionals, leaving sutdents less likely to choose a career in the sciences.
By deploying the talented employees of the life science business of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which operates as MilliporeSigma in the United States and Canada we seek to make an impact that last generations by making science fun and interesting and helping to #SparkCuriosity.
