Develop an online, interactive platform to educate children aged seven to nine years across Victoria about the dangers of electricity around the home, outdoors and at school. The content was required to be compliant with the Victorian Department of Education curriculum for primary grades three to four.
Working closely with education consultants and a child psychologist, two PowerSafe buddies were developed. The two very contemporary characters had instant and widespread appeal to our young audience. A range of games that encouraged safe role playing were then created, together with appropriate lesson plans. To help children navigate through the site, a presenter by the very descriptive name of “Plugger” was brought to life. Once children completed the three levels of learning satisfactorily they were rewarded with a certificate to show they had achieved PowerSafe Buddy status.
