KidZ & Tech 2.0 – The Future Rebooted At KidZania

To inspire greater interest in technology and its varied applications, KidZania Kuala Lumpur just announced KidZ & Tech 2.0: The Future Rebooted with partners VR Lab Bhd, U Mobile Sdn Bhd, Gleneagles Kuala Lumpur and Canon Marketing (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

 

KidZ & Tech 2.0 – The Future Rebooted At KidZania

From 16 May – 24 June 2017, daily interactive workshops and hands-on activities bring technology to life, in line with KidZania’s mission to help children “Learn Life Today”.

These activities, powered by the programme partners, engage children and showcase technology in different ways:

  • Virtual Reality with VR Lab Bhd: Using specially-designed goggles, children get to completely immerse themselves in a computer-generated, 3-dimensional 360-degree environment; with the help of an advanced control system, they get to touch and interact with items in this environment as though they are real.
  • 360-degree Photo-Taking with U Mobile Sdn Bhd: Get creative with a smartphone – just remain in a single standing position and turn a full 360-degrees circle to take a great photo, which will be shared on the KidZania Kuala Lumpur Facebook page! Choose from Street View, Surround Shot or use the Photo Sphere mode.
  • Augmented Reality Colouring: Bridge the gap between static pages and animated characters – children can watch their colouring sheet come alive beyond the page with the Stabilo 3D Colors app.
  • Coding: Children will be guided to build their own Star Wars galaxy with code and to design their own game, such as programming BB-8 to collect scrap metal using blocks or Javascript…all in the span of 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, on weekends, children get to enjoy two additional activities – the family-friendly Mystery Skype on weekends where a mystery caller will provide clues for children and parents so they can guess the identity of the caller; and sessions on Kahoot!, the popular learning game, where children will get to test their knowledge on KidZania Kuala Lumpur.
