The SciVR app is your gateway to a universe of science, bringing the cosmos to you. This Inspiring Australia initiative is supported by the Australian Government as part of National Science Week and we thank them and our supporters Swinburne University, OzGrav and CAASTRO for making it all possible. If you have any questions about the science, or have things in space you’d like to see in SciVR then why not head to our Twitter or Facebook page and ask us?

Download the App

SciVR is available for Apple or Android, on whatever device you have, and is best enjoyed through our cardboard headset which you can request below* or use your own. If you don't have a headset, don’t worry, SciVR will still give you a 3D view of our cosmos.

*Australia only, and subject to availability

Upcoming Events

SciVR let’s anyone explore the cosmos freed from an auditorium of lecture hall, but sharing this journey with others is still pretty special so we like to put on live events, where we talk you through as you walk through our Universe.

We are celebrating Australia’s annual National Science Week with two huge live events, one at the beautiful State Library of Victoria and the other at the cool Mountain Goat Brewery.

13th August

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A family friendly tour of the cosmos on the 13th August, we’ll give everyone SciVR headsets to take you from the beautiful heritage Library into the equally beautiful surrounds of space.

17th August

6:45 pm - 7:30 pm

One for the adults, with a beer in hand we’ll explore the Universe on the 17th August, we’ll provide you with a SciVR headset to take you from this cool inner-city brewery to even cooler outer-space.
