ISKANDAR PUTERI, 26 October 2019 – The endorsement of SEA LIFE Education Program by the Ministry of Education (MoE) marks LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort’s second endorsement from the ministry and further cements the attraction as a leading family-friendly and educational destination. The MoE had previously endorsed the English Mania & STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Program back in 2016. To celebrate this milestone, the resort is giving away 10,000 free tickets to students and teachers from rural schools so that they may benefit from an interactive and engaging educational experience.
“At the Ministry of Education, we believe that children should be given the freedom to choose what they want to learn. What LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort has to offer fits into our vision as we encourage students to build on their critical thinking and creativity skills. The endorsement for SEA LIFE Education Program, which matches our national curriculum, complements the extensive educational offerings already available in the resort,” said YB Dr Maszlee Bin Malik, Minister of Education Malaysia.
“Education is at the heart of what we do here, backed by our LEGO® DNA of building creativity through play. The endorsement of SEA LIFE Education Program marks our commitment to offer a robust learning centre that stimulates our children’s curiosity of the natural world and how they can help protect it. With our MoE endorsed programs, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort is the perfect place for children to enjoy outdoor learning activities that is aligned to school curriculum,” said Ms Thila Munusamy, Director Sales & Marketing, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort
“We want to create an impact in our community through our CSR program. This November, we will welcome 10,000 children and teachers from underserved rural schools to benefit from our fun learning experiences. By working with the MoE and JPN, we are also able to expand our outreach to schools across the country with our EDUPLAY EXPRESS Bus. The bus brings our educational programs directly to students and offers them an exciting interactive out-of-classroom learning platform. To date, the bus has visited more than 1,000 schools in Peninsular Malaysia and this number is steadily growing,” Ms. Thila continued.
The SEA LIFE Education Program encourages creativity and fosters innovation while ensuring children acquire scientific knowledge and skills. Each activity has been evaluated and tested. Some of the programs include:
- Little Marine Biologist – Children get to be marine biologists for a day through activities such as using a microscope to observe microorganisms.
- Let’s Build A Food Chain – Children learn about the food chain by using their creativity to build their own LEGO version.
- Why Recycling Matters to Marine Animals – Children will learn about recycling and the impact of pollution on nature with a fun and interactive experiment.
