8 to 11 November, Bilbao Science and Technology Week.
This fair aims to bring science closer to both children and adults and to urge them to share in it. Red Eléctrica wanted to give an instructive explanation of its activities in the electrical sector. During the fair, visitors were able to see how aircraft fly, study the properties of cold, discover fossils or learn about how electrical energy is present in our lives.
At the Red Eléctrica stand, visitors found educational resources like the "CONTROLA" electrical control simulator game or the virtual tour of the CECOEL, and were able to follow the forecast and consumption of electricity throughout the Peninsula in real time by way of screens connected to the control centre.
7 to 15 October, Zaragoza Trade Fair.
"An Amazing Journey Through Science" was the theme of this interactive fair based on entertainment as a vehicle for popularising science. Red Eléctrica presented various educational resources designed to reveal what lies hidden behind electrical power lines, in a simple and explanatory manner for both children and adults.
