Energy efficiency – there’s an app for that!

Efficiency Nova Scotia is kicking-off its one-year partnership with the Discovery Centre with the release of Canada’s first energy efficiency game app: Spot it!

The game app was developed in collaboration with Emmy-winning app developer and Nova Scotian Jason Nickel and Impact. The game features 13 levels where players have to spot the difference between efficient and inefficient rooms in a typical household. At the end of each level, the game explains the differences.

“Our ultimate goal is to help make energy efficiency normal behavior,” says Leanne Hachey, director of communications and stakeholder relations. “One way to do that is to teach our children how to use energy better so they can share that knowledge with their families, present and future.

“Spot it! is a way to speak to kids about energy and efficiency in a way that’s relevant to them — and it’s fun.”
