KIDZANIA LONDON LAUNCHES ITS SECOND ‘OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD’ LEARNING ACTIVITY WITH UBISOFT TO EDUCATE CHILDREN ABOUT THE SOLAR SYSTEM
Aiming to break the mould when it comes to traditional teaching methods, KidZania London – the indoor city run by kids at Westfield White City – will be launching a brand new Starlink Space Station gaming activity in partnership with Ubisoft, to help teach children in Key Stages 2 and 3 all about the solar system.
Kicking off on Tuesday 14 August, children taking part in the activity will transform into Interstellar Space Cadets and learn all about the real intergalactic universe that Ubisoft’s latest gaming release, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, is based.
Split into two sections, Cadets will first attend a briefing of their mission, where they’ll discover the wonders of the sun and solar system, and learn how gravity holds the system together. They will also learn all about Atlas, the real triple star system within the Pleiades cluster with seven planets.
Cadets will then go on to customise and create the space model of their dreams, before embarking on a journey through the Atlas Star System by playing the game itself. Testing and navigating their ship, they will explore a vibrant realisation of how a planet’s ecosystem could look, with plenty of wildlife and secrets to uncover. Along the way, they’ll encounter many challenges that they will have to act upon carefully, encouraging strong thinking and problem-solving skills.
The game isn’t officially released to the public until Tuesday 16 October, meaning your schools can be among the first to save Atlas!
Eddie Kemsley, CEO at KidZania comments: “We are over the moon to be partnering with Ubisoft to bring learning about the solar system to life in a fun and unique way. Gamers will have the chance to play the game in a way that they won’t be able to experience at home. By fully immersing players in the sci-fi world of Atlas, this experience really helps to demonstrate how gaming can be both fun and educational at the same time. We know it will prove a hugely popular addition to the city for both schools and families alike.”
Wayne Greenwell, Senior Brand Manager at Ubisoft UK comments: “We’re excited to be able to offer visitors the chance to be the first in the UK to sample Starlink Battle for Atlas as we prepare to launch. We’re really proud of the fantastic experience the team at Ubisoft Toronto have produced and can’t wait for players to get their hands on it; after all, what child doesn’t dream of being able to travel beyond our own solar system and seeing what adventures lie in wait?”
KidZania London offers 4-14-year old’s real-life activities, spanning across 75,000 square feet. Blending learning with reality and entertainment, each career at KidZania is developed to teach kids essential life skills including financial literacy, teamwork and independence.

The concept effectively gives them their first taste of independence and gets kids thinking about what they might want to be in the future.
