Immersive Science IV: Science Champions - Adults VR Experience
The Universe is waiting to be discovered!
Celebrate National Science Week with us - we're excited to bring you a virtual reality event run through your smartphone!
SciVR is an immersive astronomy experience enabled by a virtual reality (VR) smartphone app. We'll supply you with your own VR headset to use with your smartphone on the night.
From special global events using dozens of telescopes to daily monitoring of the radio sky in Australia, SciVR will take you on the hunt for things that go boom!
We’ll explore the origins of mysterious and energetic phenomena, tracking events as they occur. Dr Rebecca Allen and A/Prof Alan Duffy share the latest wonders of space research using Australian facilities, like the CSIRO Parkes telescope, to reveal more about the nature of these extreme and transiting objects.
Join us from 7pm to have a play or challenge your friends in our interactive science space, or arrive by 7:45 to get set up for the SciVR event.
Entry is $10, and includes your VR headset - which you keep after the event so you can keep exploring the SciVR app.
This session is for adults only - if you'd like to share this with your kids, check out our Family Event on Facebook.
Capacity is extremely limited - please call us on 1300 98 48 23 or email to book.
