Explaining how electricity reaches our homes and how we can use it responsibly was the main objective of the informative day organised in Zaragoza by Red Eléctrica de España in collaboration with the University Office for Diversity Support of the University of Zaragoza and the Aragón Association for Gifted Children ‘Sin Límites’, that promotes informative and educational activities for students with a high level of educational performance.
The participating students have now become more familiar with the basic concepts of electricity generation, transmission and consumption, and have discovered interesting details about the demand curve in Spain and the actions being carried out create a more efficient electricity system. Following the session, they also had the opportunity to compete against each other by playing the digital game created by Red Eléctrica called entreREDes; a game targeted at secondary school students, 13 to 16 years of age, which allows them to review their school curriculum in a fun and entertaining way, while getting to know how the Spanish electricity system works and, at the same time, understand the connection between electricity and social progress.
With entreREDes, players move around a map of Spain travelling along the main power lines and substations of the electricity transmission grid, as they correctly answer questions on six different academic subjects; the game has more than 8,500 questions. EntreREDes is an effective educational resource for the teacher in the classroom as well as an engaging academic revision tool for students to use at home on their own. The game also has a fun mode, so that it 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.
