During the three-day conference, Alchemy VR was invited to showcase a preview of David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef Dive, an award-winning virtual reality experience that is currently showing in museums around the world. It was incredibly well-received and a pleasure to share our work with the international community of science communicators . We look forward to next year’s festival.
