Challenges, missions and school contests
Endesa Educa Digital is partially developed in a digital environment for teachers, in which technology is a key element to carry out the proposed missions and tasks, without the students being in direct contact with it, but it is a key element to carry out the proposed missions and tasks. Participating teachers and students have to reach the final mission: Save the World. To do this they will meet the ‘Energy Corps’, an elite body made up of Commander Estela and Pilot Ray, who travel the galaxy recruiting agents to overcome the challenges proposed through energy savings and thus complete the final mission: save the planet. world. In addition, they will be able to participate in competitions between schools and opt for one of the three prizes offered by the program to the winning centers.
All teachers registered on the platform receive an experimentation kit that will serve as support to carry out all the activities and thus be able to overcome the proposed missions. Likewise, they have previous training for the development of the project and a teaching guide so that they can carry it out autonomously. Thanks to its online format, teachers can implement this program with total temporal and geographic flexibility, adapting to the needs and characteristics of each group. In addition, they may enroll in the program with more than one group, as long as it belongs to the 3rd or 4th year of Primary. The project is developed in several stages: welcome to the program, training for teachers through explanatory videos, provision to teachers of all the theoretical content they need, the inter-school competition, and a final stage in which they can complete extra missions on energy if the students still want to continue learning and enjoying the program.
