KidZania Doha and Rayyan Natural Water Company recently signed a partnership agreement to create a kid-sized ‘Water Lab’ inside its interactive edutainment centre. The collaboration aims to educate children about water sourcing and processing operations, and to promote the value of science.
In the ‘Water Lab’, children will take on the role of water biologists, learning about the journey of mineral water from the source, until it reaches the bottling stage. Kids will engage in delivering bottled natural waters to other establishments. At the end of each activity, children will be given free bottles of water to encourage them to pursue a healthy lifestyle and enjoy the fruit of their work with kidZos (KidZania’s currency) earned.
The partnership between KidZania Doha and Rayyan Water is part of KidZania’s desire to learn from the expertise and skills of international and local brands and to realise its vision of providing a realistic and unique edutainment environment where children are inspired to learn through role-play.
Ric Fearnett, Governor of KidZania Doha, said they are thrilled to team up with Rayyan Water, a leading brand in Qatar.
The planned Water Lab activities provide a realistic educational and entertaining platform for kids to realise the benefits of essential, quality water and a chance for children in Qatar to develop their interest in science.’
He said that preparations for the opening of KidZania Doha in 2018 are in the final stage and they are really looking forward to welcoming children from Qatar and from all over the world.
We are proud that we will contribute to the achievement of Qatar National Vision 2030 through the development and empowerment of children.’
Colin Smith, CEO of Rayyan Mineral Water Company, said that their partnership with Kidzania provides a unique platform to educate children on the water bottling process, and to encourage an active interest in learning.
KidZania Doha is expected to open its doors next year in Aspire Zone, covering an area of over 5,500 square metres. It will provide a unique educational and entertainment experience, with 42 establishments offering children aged between four and fourteen years with ‘adult jobs’ in up to 60 pretend roles where they will learn a variety of values including self-reliance, team work, honesty, integrity and giving back to society.
KidZania is the world’s fastest growing family entertainment brand. KidZania Doha is expecting to welcome over 300,000 visitor year-on-year. The establishment will be able to accommodate up to 1,000 children with approximately 250 employees at any one time.
