KidZania Doha and Rayyan Natural Water Company recently launched a kid-size Water Lab inside the edutainment city!
The collaboration between the two companies aims to educate the children of Qatar about the importance and value of water – letting them in on the process of water sourcing and manufacturing, while promoting and boosting science literacy.
Kid’s ‘Water Lab’
In the ‘Water Lab’, children will take on the role of a water biologist and will learn about the journey of mineral water, starting from the source and through a series of tests to finally get to the finish product. Children will also experience delivering Rayyan bottled waters to other establishments. At the end of each activity, they will take home the bottled water they made and receive KidZos (KidZania’s currency) as fruit of work.
This partnership with Rayyan Natural Water is part of KidZania’s vision to provide a realistic and unique learning environment for children that is both fun and educational. Lessons will be learned through role-playing, where the expertise and skills of international and local brands are used as assets in providing an all-out experience.
Qatar Entertainment Company (Tasali) Board Member, HE Sheikh Abdulaziz Bin Ahmed Al Thani, said that at KidZania, kids learn through role playing. The unique business model, he said, allows for kids to interact with brands and business in the country.
Partnering with Rayyan Water provides kids in Doha the opportunity to interact with Rayyan Water and understand the process, science, values and business of bringing a valuable resource like water to market. I am delighted that we have provided kids in Doha this unique opportunity which I believe helps them to increase their knowledge in different fields, interact and understand the process behind the making of a successful brand like Rayyan Water.’
Khalifa Al Rabban, Managing Partner of Al Rabban Holding Co, added that KidZania provides a platform that not only educate children, but also support the country’s National Vision, encouraging children to take an active interest in learning.

It has been honoured with recognition awards from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, National Tourism Council, Best Buddies and Shafallah, and is also classified as one of Qatar’s most accessible venues by Accessible Qatar.
