YEAR 10 students from Arden School in Knowle had a lesson in the future when they took part in a visit to Serious Games International (SGIL).

The firm, based in Coventry Innovation Village, uses games technology to create engaging business solutions.

The Virtual Reality Simulation provides a true representation of a particular environment and helps employees train before tackling a real life scenario. In addition the youngsters were treated to presentations from Frank Mills, MD executive chairman of Coventry University Enterprises and Tim Luft managing director of SGIL.

The students also put their skills and ideas into practice by creating ideas for a game scene and develop them.

“Global revenues are predicted to reach over £2.5 billion by 2015 in the serious games industry and our aim is to grab a significant share of this marketplace,” said Mr Luft.
