The Residential Home Construction Training Simulation was developed under a National Science Foundation Grant to assist students in learning how to construct a home. In this virtual setting, students start the simulation with nothing but a hole in the ground and must select the appropriate materials in the correct order to build the house. This application gives students the ability to build a house from the ground up; something that really isn’t possible for a student to perform outside of a simulation. There are several instances where the student will need to select which type of wood to use, as well as what insulation to use. At the end of the simulation, the student is presented with a letter grade to inform them how well they did, and also the R-value of the home. If the R-value is lower than the standards suggest, the student is then able to change the types of wood and insulate used to bring the R-value up to where it needs to be.
