On March 25, Amity Education Group launched their university activity for kids at KidZania Mumbai – the global indoor theme park. Atul Chauhan (president and chancellor of Amity University) cut the ribbon and engaged with the first batch of kids at the university.
The Amity University establishment at KidZania Mumbai replicates an institution of higher learning which grants academic degrees in four subjects of study – physical sciences, biological sciences, applied sciences and the arts. All kids have access to the university. They pay kidZos (KidZania currency) as tuition fee and identify the subject they wish to pursue. The disciplines featured at the university offer undergraduate, graduate and PhD degrees. By earning a degree at the university, kids enhance their value on the job market at KidZania Mumbai as they get higher pay (kidZos) for their enhanced knowledge.
These specially designed modules for each subject will help the kids to have a holistic view of the field they major from the university. On successfully passing the test, they would receive their Amity University ID card and be awarded with a Bachelor’s degree allowing them to earn more at other activities related to their field of graduation.
On the occasion of the launch, Atul Chauhan, president and chancellor, Amity University said, “KidZania is an amazing global concept to engage children with productive activities which focus on careers and the real world.
