E.Factory Lab

The E.Factory Lab of the OÖ Energiesparverband aims to interest students in schools in the industrial energy transition to combat the shortage of skilled staff in industry and research.

To this end, age- and target group-specific information and communication activities motivate pupils and students to become interested in the energy transition in industry and to consider it as a future career field. The E.Factory Lab is built on a modular structure with an interactive didactic concept that is carried out stepwise as an integrated part of the NEFI innovation process. In this context, a software is implemented that simulates an energy system of a factory and with didactic accompanying measures for students in their 7th and 8th school year.

Objectives and target groups

The E.Factory Lab is an offer targeted at students in the 7th and 8th grade. It aims to spark enthusiasm for the energy transition and trigger interest in professions related to this field.

Methodology

The E.Factory Lab is built on a modular structure with an interactive didactic concept that are implemented stepwise as an integrated part of the NEFI innovation process. In this context, a software is implemented that simulates an energy system of a factory and with didactic accompanying measures for students in their 7th and 8th school year.

How does the E.Factory Lab work?

  • The main element of our offer for schools is a virtual factory that presents the processes of a chocolate factory in the format of a computer game and addresses the energy system in a playful manner. Two explanatory videos guide the students through the game.

  •  

    The students can change setting parameters in the factory and experience the effects on the quality of the chocolate produced, the energy consumption and the factory‘s CO₂ emissions.

  • In small groups, students optimise the individual steps with the aim of achieving a high-quality chocolate with low CO₂ emissions.
