The CyberBuild Lab worked with Skills Development Scotland (SDS), the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and Animmersion Ltd to develop a set of three Virtual Reality (VR) games which help promote career opportunities in the construction industry.
The games develop a practical understanding of what different construction disciplines are actually about; this should help young people make better-informed decisions about their learning and training, and ultimately their selection of professional career.
The games are integrated in the My World of Work Live! programme, which is a set of interactive exhibits and activities designed to inspire young people aged between 10 and 15 about careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
VR Project Manager, one of the three mini-games, has been launched as a free Android app via Google Play.
