EMS Discoveria & Avenue K Treat 100 Children To Dino Exhibition This Ramadan

Another heartwarming type of news just arrived in my inbox recently, where Avenue K's Dinoscovery held another nice charity event. 70 children from Rumah Titian Kasih and 30 children from Rumah Kebajikan Mary and their minders recently enjoyed a special educational excursion to Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live!  courtesy of EMS Discoveria and Avenue K Shopping Mall.

The charity activity was organized in conjunction with Avenue K's launch of "Nostalgia Sinema" buka puasa buffet on the AK rooftop. At the event, the children were taken on a grand tour of Dinoscovery.

Decked in beige-coloured paleontologist’s vests and armed with RFID bands, maps and torches, the children partook in a scavenger hunt whilst exploring the many animatronic dinosaurs and interactive attractions in the 14,000 sqft exhibition which includes climbing a wall to view the Pteranodon’s nest, excavating fossils in a specially-created sandpit and Race-A-Therapod.

The young visitors also had the opportunity to watch a documentary on the evolution of dinosaurs in a 3D cinema and learnt about particular types of dinosaurs through edutainment kiosks. Upon completion of the Dino Quest, the children received expert and junior paleontologist certificates. Group photos in various Mesozoic settings were also presented as mementos of their visit.

Lee Yew Jin, General Manager of EMS Discoveria Sdn Bhd remarked, “In the spirit of Ramadan and as a caring corporate citizen, we are happy to give and engage communities in need in entertainment and education of pre-historic creatures, science and natural history."

Gina Subki, Head of Social Media and PR for Avenue K added, “EMS  Discoveria has made this Ramadan event special by hosting these kids from underprivileged backgrounds as they have the opportunity to take home not only great memories of a wonderful day out but new knowledge from the exhibition.”

  1. Lucky kids. We never had it so good during my time but I guess we had our a share of fun...in our own simple ways, maybe a whole lot more.
