The center allows children to learn about the role and importance of steel in daily lives. Children will be able to see and touch raw materials like iron ore and coal, and see the different steel parts that go into cars.
According to Hyundai Steel, this is the first such center in the steel industry.
The company said the center’s activities provide a fun and easy way for children to familiarize themselves with steel and explore future careers as steel researchers.
Meanwhile, Hyundai Steel launched its quake-resistant steel product H Core in 2017. Children vising Kidzania will have the opportunity to build and test quake-resistant structures through the H Core program.
