Aimed at primary school students, Chemini Doc is an animated Einstein archetype who teaches students in an easy-to-understand way in five languages. Belgium's chemistry education focuses too much on theory and not enough on practice, says Solvay's Pierre Coërs, health, safety and environment spokesman.
