How to attract young people to construction professions?

The HES-SO Valais-Wallis has been commissioned by the Bureau des métiers and the Valais Association of Entrepreneurs to devise an interactive tool using virtual reality. The aim is to present the building professions in a fun and innovative way.

The young public is invited to fill in a building permit by going around the specialised stands and when it is completed, they can immerse themselves in certain professions thanks to 360° films and build their own house in a virtual way thanks to a fun game.

The approach integrates professional knowledge related to the building trades and technology thanks to the skills of Prof. Antoine Widmer  and his team. 

The project was presented in Martigny during the 2020 edition of Your Challenge.
