EntreREDes is a digital game created by Red Eléctrica in 2015 as an educational tool for students in second, third or fourth year of secondary school (ESO) which allows them to better understand how the electricity system works in a fun and interactive way. In addition, the game offers added value since students can, at the same time, review the contents of the school curriculum learnt in class.

EntreREDes is a question and answer game that allows players to take a virtual tour of Spain. Players travel along the main power lines and substations of the electricity transmission grid as they correctly answer specific questions on six different subjects (Physics and Chemistry; Geography and History; Language and Literature; Mathematics; the electricity sector and leisure). The Royal Academy of the Spanish language has reviewed the texts of the game, ensuring correct use of Spanish.

The company considers that a community which is well informed from school age is better prepared to select a sustainable system and to develop it and maintain it in future societies. The aim is for children to be efficient, environmentally friendly future consumers who contribute to system sustainability through their actions.

During 2018, a total of 7,282 second-, third- and fourth-year secondary school students participated in the educational activities Red Eléctrica organised around Spain’s autonomous regions. entreREDes was present at informative and scientific events such as the Science Fair in Seville, Science for All (Palma and Ibiza) and the Science Week in Murcia. Furthermore, school ‘Olympics’ centred around the entreREDes game were also organised regionally between educational centres from Castilla y León, Castilla-La Mancha, Community of Madrid and La Rioja, and it was also included as part of social projects such as ‘Youth for Youth’ in Tenerife.

 

The entreREDes game can be downloaded for free at publications of Red Eléctrica.
In addition, it is also available for tablets in Google Play and in the App Store.
