Virtual Reality Career Awareness

What is Virtual Reality Career Awareness Day?

In a single day using your school gym or multi-purpose room, VRAR Chicago will provide everything necessary to deliver VR based Career Awareness Training for middle grade (6-9) students.

  • Up to 300 Students per Day
  • Only 30 Minutes per Student:
    • 15 Minutes Instruction & Familiarization
    • 15 Minutes in VR Headset
  • Students select two hands-on job experiences from a selection of over 30 available across eight career clusters
  • Total cost is $7,500 per day which may be eligible for State EFE reimbursement

The Challenge

Students are unaware of the breadth of career opportunities available to them. College may not suit everyone, and Illinois’ growing economic sectors need talent to foster a robust economy.

 

The job market is changing, and workforce development must evolve to meet it
Students need insight into future job opportunities that align with interests
Schools must offer a large number of options to support their full student base

The Solution:

Virtual reality career awareness training for middle grades 6-9 improves accessibility, reduces cost, improves student engagement, and removes geographic limitations.
