Motorola Lab at Wannado City

Wannado_city_logo_2Wannado City will add a Motorola M-Lab occupation venue to it's role-playing theme park for kids, located at the Sawgrass Mills Mall.

The grand opening will be on June 21 and is designed for children between the ages of 8 to 12 (but 13 and 14-year-olds are also welcome) to simulate working in a high-tech scientific laboratory. The "young inventors" get to wear lab coats while solving problems using technology and teamwork through an interactive video game. The problem solving mission doesn't involve cellphones and communication technology, as you might think, but rather includes a underwater exploration involving deep sea creatures and focuses on innovations in technology.

Even though the children might not be working with Motorola cellphones, the Motorola logo will be Motvblackl displayed throughout the lab. In a Motorola press release, the company said they purposely didn't want the lab to involve cellphones because they do more than just make cellphones, and they didn't want to blatantly market their phones to children.

In connection with Motorola's partnership with Wannado City, there are plans to integrate Motorola communications products throughout the park, such as providing two-way radios for the Wannado City police and fire department park venues. They are also equipping park staff with Motorola two-way radios.

They need to make a Wannado City for adults. I would tap that.
