Students often find it challenging to work in a well equipped chemistry lab, due to the amount of apparatus, reagents, and health and safety equipment they need to access. Nikita, Barbara and Richard have been developing a 360 degree virtual reality tour of the Chemistry, to help students become familiar with its layout.

How it works

Nikita has been exploring a range of technological solutions to this, including powerpoint tutorials, Google Streetview and a GoPro 360 degree camera. Students will be able to virtually visit the lab prior to or during their induction.


Impact of project to be fully recognised in semester 1, 2019/20.
