We left school by 8am in different school buses and reached the spot by 9am. Students were warmly welcomed by the staff and were provided with some amount of Kidzania money, which was used for accessing the various services available inside the campus.
Students were given the opportunity to choose the activity they would like to learn and play. Students who chose similar activities were sorted into groups and led to their respective workstations by a teacher. There were various workstations where children could learn along with earning money. This supported the real life experience learning for our children. All teachers were on regular rounds to ensure the safety of our children and were constantly guiding them with directions and encouraging students to visit various workstations in order to earn more money.Students on an average accessed around 6 to 8 different workstations. A good level of exposure to learning by doing was provided by all the activities in the campus instilling the different 21st century skills like Creativity, critical thinking, communication, confidence and collaboration.
