Parents, just chill and amble along with your children at KidZania this school holiday! Recently, KidZania Kuala Lumpur launched its one-of-a-kind school holiday programme, called "ArchaeoKidZ". ArchaeoKidZ allows children to experience a series of themed role-play activities in history and archaeology. The program is aimed to develop historical and archaeological understanding in the youngsters through innovative and engaging learning experiences.\r\n\r\nThe launched was officiated by Guest of Honour, Professor Dato\u2019 Dr Mokhtar Saidin, Director of the Centre for Global Archaeological Research (CGAR) in Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), who also served as the Vice-President of the Ikatan Ahli Arkeologi Malaysia (IAAM).\r\n\r\nSpeaking at the launch, \u201cI applaud the effort made by KidZania Kuala Lumpur in taking the initiative to develop this programme, which I am certain will be an effective way to raise awareness among children and their parents of the importance of history and archaeology. Teaching children to understand the past will help them to understand change. It teaches them to think, which helps to develop their intellectual growth and skills such as cognitive skills. It is important when children are in the process of learning to be adults.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe initiative made by KidZania Kuala Lumpur will surely help pave the way to our young children on history and archaeology.\u00a0 ArchaeoKidZ will run from 10th to 25th of August 2019, enriching children with new knowledge and hands-on experiences. There will be two main activities, three weekend's workshops, and a special activity for loyalty programme members of KidZania.\r\nMAIN ACTIVITIES\r\n\r\n \tFossil Excavation\r\n\r\nIntroduces the children to basic principles and techniques of archaeological excavation with the proper Archaeologist tools.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \tKnow Your Dino\r\n\r\nThis is where the children will learn about the type of dinosaurs and their profile by extracting the fossil out using proper tools.\r\nWEEKEND WORKSHOPS\r\n\r\n \tThe Dino Wrap\r\n\r\nThis workshop by Mission Foods and Emborg will allow participants to learn to make a dino-shaped wrap and eat it later!\r\n\r\n \tThe Glue Fossils\r\n\r\nLet your child discover the fascinating process of creating the fossils\u00a0at this workshop by UHU and Faber-Castell.\r\n\r\n \tMayan Art Workshop\r\n\r\nYour kids will also enjoy this art and craft activity where they will get to replicate stone-carved glyphs using craft supplies by UHU in this workshop.\r\nSpecial for BKidZanian - Spell The Dino!\r\n\r\n\r\nA special activity just for BKidZanian's kids where they need to spell the dinosaur names correctly to redeem prizes.

We explore the most engaging ways for teaching history and archaeology to children with a series of fun learning, kid-centric activities and workshops, resulting in more than a chance for children to have fun, but they will also glean many skills and gain some hands-on archaeological experience too. This will also open the door for us in conveying the excitement of history and archaeology to them."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSo parents, let's bring your kids to explore the fun and adventures of history and archaeology at KidZania Kuala Lumpur this school holiday.
