PPG works with HUMANITARIUM science center in Poland to sponsor interactive ‘Laboratory of Colors’

Hands-on children’s exhibit is first of many planned joint efforts

PPG is sponsoring the new interactive “PPG Laboratory of Colors” at the HUMANITARIUM science center in Wroclaw, Poland. The permanent exhibit is the first of many collaboration projects planned by PPG and the science center, all of which will aim to engage children and nurture their interest in science and technology. PPG and its global grantmaking program contributed $30,000 to bring the hands-on exhibit to life.

The PPG Laboratory of Colors exhibit, which opened in April, uses various resources to help children explore and understand the science behind color. They can create 3D pictures with “puffy paints” they make themselves, and learn how to mix colors by combining virtual paints on a screen and using them to paint an animated room. A 3D rainbow also helps children make the colour connection between water and sunlight diffraction.
