KidZania Kuala Lumpur is an award-winning indoor family edutainment centre that offers interactive learning and role-play experiences for kids. The first of its kind in providing edutainment fun, KidZania Kuala Lumpur empowers and inspires kids to pursue their life’s dreams by providing them an avenue to explore what it’s like to live and work in a real functioning city.
In the spirit of driving the understanding of new technologies that would engage the young community in creative learning experiences, KidZania Kuala Lumpur has embarked on the KidZ & Tech Program, from 28 May to 12 June 2016 where children get to experience a series of interactive workshops, themed role-play opportunities and online activities that bring the future within reach.
Developed in collaboration with partners Microsoft Malaysia, Sasbadi Holdings, Panasonic, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, and Multimedia University, the entire program is a collection of activities designed to inspire interest in science and technology. In essence, the activities are aimed at helping children develop problem-solving and computational thinking skills, which will serve them well as adults.
