Immersive Science: Virtual Reality meets Data

Technology - Exhibition

Event Details

Can you study science by living it?

Data sets are more than just theory and stats. We can use complex data to construct physical worlds, see from new perspectives, and explore different versions of reality. Data61 invites you to experience science in ways that used to be impossible, using Virtual and Augmented Reality to explore the world through immersive 3D environments. Live through a simulated bushfire that will help you understand how fires spread; walk inside the metal powder bed of a 3D printer; discover how differently matter behaves at nanoscale levels; and hang out with honey bees.

This event is booking fast.
