Queensland school children get electrical safety lessons
Ergon Energy and Energex Network staff visited Queensland schools during this year’s Electrical Safety Week (4-8 September) to teach children about electrical safety as part of the 2023 Safety Heroes program.
Executive General Manager Karen Stafford said a new gaming app and a scratch project have been added to this year’s program.
“We have a couple of exciting additions this year – the Safety Heroes gaming app and a Scratch project developed in collaboration with Code Club Australia, which allows students to create their own electrical safety game,” she said.
“The Safety Heroes app is a free, fully immersive game students can download to their phone or tablet and move their chosen character around a virtual city or rural landscape, collecting safety points while avoiding electrical hazards.”
Statistics show 97% of primary schools across Queensland have signed up for the 2023 Safety Heroes program.
