Celebrate Children’s Day: Enjoying at Shanghai Expo
Today is International Children's Day. For children, it is a good chance to take rest from heavy study work and enjoy the yearly holiday, and most children want their parents to be with them this day.
"I want to be a policeman when I grow up." "I want to be a doctor." Children cherish their dreams, and fortunately they can realize them and experience different careers at the current Shanghai Expo while they are still kids.
The Abilia Experience Center or "Yu Le Wan" is the only pavilion designed especially for children at this year's Expo. The center offers 25 virtual occupational experiences so children can feel what it's like to be a policeman, doctor, or even a journalist. The experience allows youngsters from 7 to 15 years of age to be inspired by future career prospects, Shanghai-based Oriental Morning Post reports on June 1.
Just like in the real world, different jobs are interconnected with one another at the pavilion. For example, upon receiving the news of a fire, firemen must rush to the site immediately, while photographers will take photos at the scene where firemen put out the fire, and detectives have to ask for clues from other kids in order to solve the case.
"It satisfied my craving to be a photographer, and I found it's tiring to be a good one." Wang Chuntong, a 5-year-old commented after using a single-lens reflex and cracking the shutter in a mini shooting vest.
With Children's Day comes a variety of pavilions to choose from at the World Expo which has several activities designed for kids to celebrate the holiday. Most children said the Yu Le Wan is their favorite pavilion and it was selected as the "Most Popular Pavilion for Children."
Du Kui, an official who is in charge of the project said, "Yu Le Wan is a child's world, and they can present their specific characters completely while there."
Advise: Parents should pay more attention to kids
On the day of children's holiday, the best gift parents give their children is being tighter with them, not different kinds of presents. Kids could have a most happy day with their parents this day.go to EXPO it's a good choice.
