Tehran Book Garden goes high tech with a little help from LG
South Korean electronics giant LG (Lucky Goldstar) has opened a special exhibit in Tehran’s Book Garden in the Abbasabad Hills area of Tehran, according to a report from Yonhap News Agency.
Called the LG Kids Science Hall, children can play with the latest gadgets and toys produced by the company as well as play Robo-Football.
The company makes no bones about promoting its brand, but acts of CSR in Iran are relatively rare, and only LG and its main competitor usually do them.
At the venue, LG said visitors could take a glimpse of top-notch technologies for robots and automobiles, as well as various opportunities to learn science from everyday life.
The science hall is located at Book Garden, a significant book centre in Tehran with 70,000 average monthly visitors.
Best of all, the exhibit is free to enter as part of the wider Book Garden complex which offers many activities for children to do.
The Book Garden is located on Abbasabad Hills, Haqqani Highway, across from the National Library and Archives Organization of Iran.
Here’s what one parent Saeedeh said of visiting Tehran Book Garden;
“I was generally impressed with the exhibition and layout of the Book Garden, honestly it’s like being abroad and so many things for the kids to learn and play with!”
