The Socio-cultural Centre of the Valencian municipality of La Eliana today hosted the contest ‘Olimpiada entreREDes’, a championship in which a hundred students from four schools participated and which was undertaken by teams of 3rd and 4th of ESO (Secondary Compulsory Education). The Mayor of La Eliana, Salva Torrent, the Councilor for Education, Eva Santafé, and the Regional Delegate of Red Eléctrica de España in the Autonomous Community of Valencia, Maite Vela, attended the closing ceremony and presented the prizes to the winning students.

The digital educational game entreREDes, created by Red Eléctrica de España, has put to a test the skills and knowledge of secondary school students on the curricular contents in an entertaining way and, at the same time, has provided knowledge on how the Spanish electricity system works and the link that exists between electricity and social progress. Players move around a map of Spain traveling along the main power lines and substations of the electricity transmission grid as they correctly answer questions on six different academic subjects.

With more than 8,500 questions and three playing modes, entreREDes is an effective educational resource for the teacher in the classroom; an enjoyable and engaging revision tool for students to use at home, and a way of having fun that can be shared with family or friends.

The creation of the entreREDes game responds to Red Eléctrica’s commitment to the dissemination of knowledge regarding the electricity system and its overall operation, in order to provide society with information on the development of a sustainable energy model. In this regard, the education arena is a priority objective.
