|Venture||The strategic innovation programme for Metallic material|
Purpose and goal
We wish to change the way young people perceive the steel and metal industry. By developing virtual and interactive study visits showing parts of the industry that normally are closed, we believe we could stimulate young peoples interest in technology and science.
Expected results and effects
Our ambition is to develop and create an application and a web solution for interactive study visits in 360videos and interactive Virtual Reality. As a complement we´re also developing a teacher´s guide linked to the curriculum LGR11. This tool will become a bridge between schools and the industry by providing students with an easy way to explore many workplaces, including those usually closed for traditional study visits and "prao" (internship).
Planned approach and implementation
We will adapt the study material for the target group by developing an application which resembles more of a game than a regular information video. During the project we will also recruit a reference group with representatives from both the business- and educational sector who will help us make sure our application contains relevant information.
