Calling Young Scientists to Henkel Researchers' World at Mill River Park! - Stamford Moms
Henkel is a global company operating worldwide with leading brands and technologies, including household names such as Loctite® adhesives, Dial® soaps, Persil® and ‘all detergents, and Snuggle fabric softeners. Their North America Consumer Goods HQ is located right here in Stamford!

Henkel Researchers’ World launched in North America in 2021 in partnership with Mill River Park as an educational initiative designed to introduce children to the world of science!

The Researchers’ World content is specifically tailored to elementary-school aged children and takes a holistic approach towards teaching and learning by putting children into the role and workplace of an actual researcher.

This summer, Henkel opened a branded classroom in Mill River Park’s new Whittingham Discovery Center!

The classroom features science lab equipment and workstations customized for up to 20 elementary-school aged children, as well as bright and colorful Researchers’ World imagery throughout.

As an extension of the classroom, a Henkel Researchers’ World Discovery Cart is available on weekends throughout the park. The Discovery Cart, a mobile unit run by high school and college-age docents who are trained to deliver the Researchers’ World curriculum, provides interactive, pop-up lessons for children.

As the school year starts, Henkel Researchers’ World at Mill River Park is open to local schools for field trips. Mill River Park will work with school officials to coordinate the learning experience and logistics – the cost of transportation is covered by the program! Parents are encouraged to reach out to their PTO representatives to inquire about field trips for their children’s classrooms!
