CareerLabs VR (for 8th-12th grade students) combines career exploration with the power of virtual reality, so students can experience hands-on careers from the comfort and safety of the classroom. Instead of viewing a computer screen, users are immersed and able to interact in a 3D environment. The student will perform various tasks related to the career field they choose to explore. Students choose from 24 career modules and then will perform various tasks on the virtual job site - like reading a blueprint, cutting a pipe with a grinder, or operating a crane - with the most commonly used tools of their selected trade. Below is the list of 24 career experiences available. Listed at the bottom are all the schools in the PLAEA area that have taken advantage of this opportunity. If your school isn’t on the list, please fill out the booking form in order to get this experience to your students. A PLAEA consultant will facilitate the experience for your students.
