KidZania Jakarta Reveals Kompas Newspaper Edition

JAKARTA, Indonesia. KidZania Journal. February 28, 2012. (English). -There is no greater pride than contributing to our children and preparing the next generation for a better world, by opening a new window to the world with the knowledge of print and digital media. That was the message delivered by KidZania Jakarta and Kompas, during the Opening Ceremony of Kompas Newspaper Edition establishment. 

Here, children can become journalists and reporters for both print and digital media. To do so, kids have to perform a series of interviews around KidZania Jakarta and then return to the Newspaper Edition office to write down their stories. Children are also encouraged to develop their personality, teamwork, and learn media’s code of ethics.
