Oxford Science and Ideas Festival

October 22, 2018

Four of our students, Darya Shchepanovska, Tom Fay, Callum Bungey and Rocco Meli demonstrated the NanoSim Box VR at the IF festival, held at the Oxford Town Hall on 13th October. The VR was used to explain chemical concepts and how technology can be used to enhance our understanding of chemistry.
