An open immersive virtual reality interface for pre-university and first-year students allows them to explore engineering disciplines, such as structural or hydraulics, as part of engaging their interest in STEM careers. The VR program allows the user to navigate through a 3D model of a building and see the construction components that are “normally hidden” behind other layers, such as the plumbing, columns, slabs and beams. “Civil Virtual Reality Laboratory” is openly available online and can be tested using the HTC VIVE headset, the corresponding controller and a VR-ready computer.
