Its now almost becoming quite common place for companies to promote themselves or their brands using virtual reality (VR) or 360-degree video. Today the Tulsa Welding School (TWS) – one of the largest in the US – will be debuting a 360-degree video, showcasing the potential opportunities afforded to trained highly skilled welders.
The video highlights the variety of environments and locations where welders can most often be found: on top of a skyscraper, working on a ship, and in a traditional welding shop.
“Tulsa Welding School is excited to debut our 360-degree VR video at this year’s FFA Convention & Expo,” said Shelly Short, Marketing Director, StrataTech Education Group. “We believe this 360 virtual reality experience is the first of its kind in skilled trades education. It offers a unique way to engage in a dialogue with students and parents about what TWS offers, and the many career opportunities available for welders,”
Visitors to the booth will be able to view the experience with TWS also providing cardboard VR viewers for students to take home and view the video online through YouTube. During the FFA Convention & Expo, TWS will interact with attendees and the public, using live Facebook events, Instagram, and Snapchat geofilters.
After the FFA convention, TWS representatives will show the video to students around the country bringing welding into high school classrooms and homes.
You can watch the video below, or to make it more immersive watch it via YouTube on a smartphone using a head-mounted display (HMD).
