On April 22, 2022 Siemens Gamesa wants to celebrate International Earth Day with children by launching a competition on Energy and Sustainability with Planet Rescuers, its videogame in Minecraft: Education Edition.
The competition will be held from April 22 to May 3, 2022 and is open to children aged 8 to 14. Participants should be related to a Siemens Gamesa employee.
The theme of 2022 Earth Day is #InvestInOurPlanet. Planet Rescuers is our way to invest in the next generation by educating students on the importance of fighting climate change and preserving the environment by making the right decisions.
1) Register here before April 18, 2022 here (on the Social Commitment website event). Registration must be made by a Siemens Gamesa employee.
2) On April 21, employees registered will receive a link by email to access the content with the instructions for downloading the adventures, video tutorial, and a contact email for any questions.
Planet Rescuers is part of Minecraft Education and as such usually only available for schools, but for this competition, which will revolve around the first two adventures of the video game, a special link will be made available to individuals.
Contestants will be able to choose the most convenient day to play each adventure. Each one lasts about 45 minutes and must be completed in one go.
The winners of each adventure will be determined on the basis of the number of correct answers, and the time taken to complete it.
As we are developing a new adventure for Planet Rescuers where students will be able to learn more about wind energy and sustainable solutions, we will need testers to review it and names for the new characters, so the prizes will be the following:
• High Score: Become one of the characters in the new adventure.
• 2nd and 3rd place scores: Be a tester for the new adventure.
Remember that Planet Rescuers is free and available to all schools and educational institutions that want to use it. It is available in English, Spanish, German and Danish.
