The future coworkers of the steel industry

A educational digital tour for the classroom

Background

What does the future look like for the steel industry? And how can we attract a new segment of youth to consider a career in steel? We took up this challenge together with the non-profit education organization Framtidsfrön and received a grant from the Swedish innovation agency VINNOVA to explore these concepts as a classroom product.

The grant’s goal was to make the steelmaking industry more attractive to young people since it’s a rapidly growing industry with a high demand for workforce.

Educational digital tour for school children

Praised by students, teachers and Swedish National Agency for Education

Our solution

In partnership with educational experts Framtidsfrön, IVAR Studios made an in-browser platform with virtual tours for middle school education. You got to experience five professions in the platform at Uddeholm’s top-modern steel plant in Sweden – taking the story beyond a study visit and into the fire of the production process. The platform was built to be scalable from the start, in an ongoing process to add more functionality and more professions to the content base for coming generations.

Results

The platform combines 360-videos with digital assignments, making it possible for the teacher to follow the students’ progress in real-time. The idea is that the platform can be used both in teacher-led classes and remotely from students’ homes. 

The project received great feedback from both teachers and students, and in the heat of the corona pandemic, it got recommended by the Swedish National Agency for Education (Skolverket).
