“We be­lieve in pro­vid­ing chil­dren with learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to help them un­der­stand the world around them.

“This way, they will de­velop valu­able life skills.

“With science and tech­nol­ogy be­ing Malaysia’s key fo­cus in fu­ture, as well as re­search and devel­op­ment, we are proud to col­lab­o­rate with Sharp in boost­ing chil­dren’s in­ter­est in this area,” said Shahrul at KidZa­nia Kuala Lumpur, Mu­tiara Da­mansara here yes­ter­day.

“Rais­ing chil­dren to be knowl­edge­able adults is worth the ef­fort and we are proud to ed­u­cate them.

“We hope that chil­dren will be in­spired to learn more and pledge to do their part to take care of the en­vi­ron­ment,” he said.
