All KidZania activities are designed with an experiential learning process in mind, channelled through fun role-play activities that seamlessly combine education and entertainment. The overall concept is quite ancient, as Aristotle once said, “for the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”
KidZania Mumbai offers 100+ role-playing activities in over 65 establishments. These activities include an introduction to aviation, animation, acting, engineering, medical sciences among others. A university inside the KidZania premises encourages kids to spend their kidZos to sharpen their skills.
Since Experiential Learning involves learning from direct experience or “doing” rather than listening or memorizing facts, it’s strongly linked to KidZania’s concept, supported by this relevant quote from Xun Kuang: “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
KidZania's activities are known to seamlessly combine education and entertainment.
