KidZania KidZ & Tech Festival: Get Hands-On with Science and Technology

KidZania Kidz & Tech Festival

The importance of technology in our world today is undeniable. At the inaugural KidZania Kidz & Tech Festival, kids can get a fun introduction to Science and Technology and how it affects everyday lives through play.

KidZania Kidz & Tech Festival 2017 will be held from 31 August to 10 September 2017. The eleven-day Festival aims to bring a taste of Science and Technology to children through out-of-classroom real-life experiences in the kid-sized city of KidZania Singapore.

Activities have been designed to complement what is taught in school and incorporates hands-on experiences. Regular admission charges to KidZania Singapore apply but the activities being conducted as part of KidZania Kidz & Tech Festival are absolutely free.
