Dino-loving kids, you’re in for a treat. A brand new interactive and dinosaur-themed educational centre was recently launched at the Gardens Mall in conjunction with Earth Day 2018. Team makchic was at the launch of Jurassica, a place you may want to take your kids to next!
Jurassica takes their young visitors, also nicknamed Earth Cadets, through a mesmerising time-vortex. It sends them back to million years ago, where dinosaurs roam free in a neon-splattered prehistoric setup. Their mission is to advocate for ecological conservation, and educate society about Planet Earth’s environmental plight.
An immersive and interactive experience
Here, visitors get their own personal tag to check-in at every activity and dinosaur encounter. The activities include interaction with lifesized animatronic dinosaurs, RFID Scavenger hunt and a data and sample collection. There is also a zip line, a three-storey play zone and an exotic animal exhibition to thrill young explorers.
The points collected during every check-in will enable kids to redeem fabulous gifts at the check-out counter!
To date, Jurassica has collaborated successfully with various organisations such as The Malaysian Nature Society and the World Wildlife Fund. They have come together for meaningful projects to advocate for Earth conversation and promote a love for nature. The centre is looking forward to more collaborations in the future, which will definitely add to its array of exciting activities.
Besides permanent exhibitions, there is also a line up of educational activities and workshop prepared for 2018. Among these are recycling programs, a Pitcher Plant Workshop, Young Geologist, and a Hornbill Workshop and Tour.
Earth conservation campaigns
Showing that they can walk the walk, Jurassica has recently launched a few campaigns to contribute to environmental causes. One is the ‘Save our Planet Program with Hi-5’, the popular preschool edutainment pop group from Australia. In this campaign, the group has become the official ambassadors of the program, in hopes of spreading the message of planet conservation to a global audience. 10% of any Hi-5 merchandise sales at Jurassica will also go towards planet conservation.
To encourage more people to recycle plastic, another campaign named the ‘Unplastic Program’ has also been launched this year. From 18 April 2018 to end of December 2018, visitors may redeem one free ticket whenever they bring in 30 plastic bottles to be recycled at Jurassica.
