Toppscholars & Kidzania Partner To Create Hybrid Phydigital ‘Innovation Lab’ Experience
Kids can become Marine Researchers in the Toppscholars Innovation Lab & learn about ocean conservation
KidZania, the world’s fastest-growing edutainment platform, has collaborated with Jaro Education’s Toppscholars, one of India’s leading ed-tech platforms to launch ‘Toppscholars Innovation Lab’. This brand new experience will educate children about marine life conservation.
A pioneer in the Indian experiential platform and the world over, KidZania engages kids between the ages of 4 to 16 in fun activities by effectively blending entertainment and education. KidZania’s indoor city - with its paved streets, buildings, vehicles, and a functional economy is also home to recognisable 'experiences' by prominent multinational and home-grown brands – designed to replicate the image and likeness of the real world.
At the hi-tech touch-interactive Toppscholars Innovation Lab, children will play the role of ‘Assistant Marine Researchers,’ learn about the marine life crisis and be trained to restore balance in the ecosystem using advanced technology. The AI-based activity helps children discover how coral reefs form a vital part of the marine ecosystem by being home to thousands of marine species and protecting coastlines from the damaging effects of the tsunami and other tropical storm wave actions. Furthermore, they will also learn about coral bleaching (barren, dead corals) that occurs due to issues like global warming, pollution, erosion, and commercial fishing and its ramifications on the environment at large.
As Assistant Marine Researchers kids are encouraged to care for the environment by taking charge and embarking on an ocean-saving mission by containing plastic debris, rescuing the affected ocean life caught and tangled in plastic, and restoring the coral reef ecosystem using cutting-edge innovative methods. They will be 'paid' 10 kidZos for this role-play. Meanwhile, this personalised learning experience aims to develop cognitive and social skills in a child as it will allow them to work in teams and encourage them to assess the situation before thinking of an innovative solution for controlling the damage to the ocean life from various threats.
