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?


VR Headsets

Scivr Headset

These SciVR headsets give the best VR experience for the SciVR app; your gateway to a universe of science, bringing the cosmos to you, on your smartphone. The headsets are high quality Google Cardboard and fit most smartphones (but not tablets). You can purchase these from Swinburne Bookshop online.



SciVR is available for Apple or Android, on whatever device you have, and is best enjoyed through our cardboard headset which you can purchase at the Swinburne Bookshop 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 in non-VR mode.



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 celebrated 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.


Mountain Goat Event Live stream

This is a recorded livestream event which features Dr Alan Duffy and Dr Katie Mack in their presentation of the SciVR app, the associated headset and our amazing universe!
