The second edition of “Gara y la energía que nos rodea” project has already started. In this occasion, the novelty lies in the adaptation of the exhibition to the digital format. The generation of different innovative tools is also incorporated: two breakout-type online educational modules (for primary and secondary education) accompanied by an escape game, a didactic unit for teachers as a resource before and after the visit, a total of five downloadable infographics about this area (with audio reading) and a virtual visit to the exhibition itself.
Designed by IREC with the collaboration of the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología (FECYT), “Gara y la energía que nos rodea 3.0” is an educational outreach project directed to young people and students to promote scientific vocations. It aims at providing knowledge on the generation, storage, distribution and consumption of energy from the energy transition point of view.
During 2022, it shown at the Jordi Rubió i Balaguer Library (Sant Boi de Llobregat), the Sant Josep Cultural Center (l’Hospitalet de Llobregat), Moià, the Centre de les Arts i la Memòria de Ponent (Juneda), the Energy HubLab in Balaguer (Lleida), and Zaragoza. In 2023, it will be exposed at the Olius Town Hall, the Concactiva headquarters in Montblanc (Tarragona), La Violeta de Gràcia Cultural Center and the Joan Oliver Pere Quart Civic Center, both in Barcelona.
The target audience is primary and secondary school students, as well as students from rural centers. In addition, it continues to bet on inclusion by paying attention to students with special needs.
The initiative has the support of the Catalan Institute of Energy of the Generalitat de Catalunya (ICAEN), the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation (FCRi) and the Association of Micropobles de Catalunya.
