JRCS exhibited at Shimonoseki Future Creation Job Fair!
On August 2 to 3, JRCS exhibited at “Shimonoseki Future Creation Job Fair,” a work experience event for junior high and high school students hosted by Shimonoseki City.
4,290 students participated in this event. The purpose of the job fair was to help students understand what it means to work and develop a vision for their future by experiencing the various jobs of local companies!
At the JRCS booth, students were able to try wiring an electric panel, which is in the manufacturing process of our marine equipment. The wiring kit used was a special kit made in-house for the event. If the wires are properly inserted according to the circuit diagram, the lamp will light up when the switch turns on.
In addition, students had the opportunity to use our HoloLens, a head-mounted display-type device similar to a VR headset, which they used to draw pictures in an MR (Mixed Reality) space. While this is intended for engineer support, they were able to experience a part of JRCS’ DX initiatives in a playful way.
A first-year junior high school student who tried the wiring experience said, “It was more difficult than I thought, but I was happy when the light came on!”
Another commented, “I thought it sounded like an interesting job.” and “I became interested in ships.” Such comments were very gratifying to all of us who had worked so hard to prepare for the event.
As always, JRCS will continue to place importance on its relationship with local communities.
In the wire wiring experience, students learned that beauty is important in addition to speed.
The kit is specially made by JRCs employees.
The experience of drawing pictures in three dimensions in the MR space was so popular that students had to wait in line.
The drawings were projected on a monitor so that students waiting for their turn could also enjoy the experience.
Many students responded in the survey that “JRCS work seems interesting”.
