Viridis would like to discuss visiting the competition arena.
I was thinking about how to better enable Visitors to relate to what the
respective trades are about during their visit to the competition arena.
I do believe that currently there are guided tours conducted for schools
and at regular intervals for visitors however I most of them cannot really
relate what is happening in each trade especially those Technology trades
(E.g CAD, IT etc) to how it affects them in their everyday lives.
Just to start of the discussion...as per Helsinki there was a LCD panel
setup for each trade to introduce the competitors and experts at each
trades booth. How about adding one or 2 computer stations where we can
have interactive flash display or games so that the visitors can
understand better each trades role in the industry or in everyday lives?
For example, for IT/PC network support we could have a short flash that
introduces how the internet, emails get to their homes? Coupled with an
interactive flash game for them to connect their virtual home to the
internet and see how they interact with the whole. If we can have 2
stations, we can somewhat put the 2 computers at 2 ends of the trade area.
At the end of the game the visitors can chat with each other, see each
other through webcam. During the process they will understand how their
video, data is sent through the internet; which IT/PC Network Support
trade people 'in between built' and see the end results.
Thanks and Regards
