Neutralising the Covid-19 Threat

EMEA, Technology, Supplier News, United Kingdom

An interactive smart buildings game from Siemens empowers Key Stage 3 students (11 to 14 year olds) to learn more about Covid-19 and health and safety.

 

Set in a shopping centre against the backdrop of the COVID-19 outbreak, 'Neutralise the Threat' challenges students to consider key public health and safety risks by learning how to spot and negate them by using smart technology.

 

The game is accompanied by worksheets and notes which provide teachers and parents with a framework for linking it into the National Curriculum in the UK. Teachers are also provided with more detailed notes on topics including bacteria, viruses, and how to control both.

 

Brenda Yearsley, Siemens UK School and Education Development Manager, comments: "We originally started with an idea to develop an educational game based on Siemens’ Smart Infrastructure Solutions. But as the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic began to unfold, we realised there was an opportunity to tap into current affairs and help expand KS3 students’ awareness of COVID-19, helping to demystify what might otherwise be a very worrying topic for young people.

 

"All our Siemens Education materials are free to play and mapped to the national curriculum so home-schooling parents can be confident that the game-play is also helping students meet their educational goals."
