The Women in Industry group in Flin Flon experienced virtual glimpses into mining, construction and roadbuilding training through virtual reality headsets. The headsets were provided by NMSC (and their partnerships*) to give northerners a glimpse into different fields of employment in industry, and the potential outcomes of IT training—someone had to develop the programs!
Through this experience, the program participants had a blast gaining further ideas of where they can go with their foundational Intro to Industry training.
*Partnerships include those with Community Economic Development Fund – Look North; Manitoba Construction Sector Council; and Bit Space Development.
