SEAFUEL’s participation in this event aims to disseminate the research activity carried out within the framework of the project in a playful way.

The European project SEAUFUEL will participate once again in the Miniferias de la Ciencia y la Innovación en Canarias, organised by the Regional Ministry of Economy, Knowledge and Employment of the Government of the Canary Islands through the Canary Islands Agency for Research, Innovation and the Information Society (ACIISI).

The 17th edition of Miniferias de la Ciencia y la Innovación en Canarias, based on the ‘International Year of the Creative Economy for Sustainable Development’, will be held in the morning, in an online format and for educational centres on all the islands.

In this edition and through its partners in the Canary Islands, the Instituto Tecnológico y de Energías Renovables (ITER) and the Agencia Insular de Energía de Tenerife (AIET), SEAFUEL will participate in this event with the new escape rooms of the project which have been designed by AIET with the aim of continuing with the communication and awareness-raising work of the project, providing a complementary activity of a playful nature which brings this technology closer to the student mass.

The Escape Room: The secret laboratory SEAFUEL is a game in which students must save the planet by preventing the destruction of the new technology that has been developed in the secret facilities of the SEAFUEL project. To do so, they will have to find the hidden clues and solve the tests while they familiarise themselves with the basic concepts related to the use of hydrogen as an alternative fuel for transport. This activity will be made dynamic for students in the 2nd cycle of Primary and Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO), adapting it to each level.

The game has been launched as a prelude to what will arrive on the island of Tenerife in the coming months, a pilot plant that will produce and supply hydrogen to a small fleet of vehicles, which have already begun to arrive on the island.

The Miniferias are a showcase of knowledge for the general public, giving visibility to projects related to the dissemination and teaching of science, technology and innovation, and promoting the participation of the different agents of the Canary Islands R&D&I system.
