Pylon Town: A new educational app for Western Power
How do circuits work? Why is electricity dangerous? What kinds of things do we use electricity for? Pylon Town is a new app that introduces children to these and other topics in a set of seven games developed exclusively for Western Power Distribution. Each game is different and has been designed with both fun and learning in mind.
Imogen Adams of Turbo Island Games says “Engaging children with topics that they might not usually explore can be challenging, but games and apps present a perfect opportunity. We’ve used a lot of electricity facts to design our games and we hope that’s made them even more fun to play. We’ve also managed to sneak in a good dose of quirky humour.”
Emma Vincent from Western Power says “Topics like household safety and appliance efficiency don’t usually grab children’s attention, but these games are fast, zany and heaps of fun. We think they’ll have a lot of laughs and pick up some valuable information along the way.”
Western Power Distribution provides power to 7.9 million customers in the Midlands, the South West and South Wales.
Pylon Town is developed by Turbo Island Games and Large Visible Machine.
