Portfolio

Pipefitter is an experience where the user will work on measuring and cutting large water pipes and help with the installation process. They work in an outdoor environment at a construction site for a new hydroelectric dam. This experience was created in partnership with The Employment+Education Center.

In robotic welding operator, the user will operate different programs used in setting up and programming robot welding arms to work on wind turbine engines. There is a lot of problem solving in this simulation, as the user must follow a very precise work order and I'm sure that deadlines are met. This experience was created in partnership with The Employment+Education Center.

Process engineer is an experience where the users will have to monitor and track the status of four different machines involved in the production of iron ore pellets. This simulation has a heavy emphasis on problem-solving, once the user has completed the tutorial, they will have to troubleshoot the four machines without any guidance using the information they have learned. This experience was created in

partnership with The Employment+Education Center.

In Mining Engineer, the user will get to experience the planning phases in the initial detonation phases of building a mine. They will get the pilot a drone, learn about the different types of mine that could be constructed at the site, and make an informed selection about which type of mine will be constructed. They will need to prepare explosive charges that will be used to help form the mine and then

detonate them from a safe distance. This experience was created in partnership with The Employment+Education Center.

In Machine Operator, the user drives a cable shovel excavator and needs to fill up to haul trucks full of dirt that contains hematite rock. Driving a large machine like the cable shovel excavator is a very slow process as these machines are very large. This experience was created in partnership with The Employment+Education Center.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am an Experiential Learning Consultant for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario with.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire UP360?

My primary focus as for Experiential Learning is to support Career Studies and Pathways Planning with a particular focus on promoting the Skilled Trades. We began working with UP360 as they have developed VR tools for exploring the Skilled Trades.

What were your goals for this project?

Our primary goal is to provide opportunities for students to explore potential careers in an immersive environment. As a former Guidance Counsellor, I understand how overwhelming it can be for teenagers when making decisions about potential careers and post-secondary pathways. The tools that UP360 have created have been hugely successful in promoting interest in the Skilled Trades, especially with students who are underrepresented (ie. women and people of colour). As we move forward, we hope to expand the use of VR to include career exploration for other areas (eg.Health Sciences).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended to me by Martha Jez from Microsoft. I met with Harrison and his team on various occasions, had them visit our Career Fair, and then chose to pursue a contract with them.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

UP360 developed VR applications for the Skilled Trades (Welding, Electrical, Robotics Technician, Heavy Equipment Operator, HVAC Technician, Process Engineer, Mining Machine Operator, Mining Engineer, Pipe Fitter, Robotics Welding Operator, and Construction Welding.

What was the team composition?

I worked primarily with Harrison and one of his employees.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The tools UP360 have developed have provided the most exciting and coolest opportunities for our students! Students are able to explore trades virtually and LOVE IT!!! UP360 has been great to work with -- approachable, supportive, and accessible. I started out knowing virtually nothing about VR, and now I am (with the help of their guidance and patience) facilitating sessions with students and educators to show them the endless opportunities that VR learning provides.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

NA
