Women wearing VR headset and snorkel underwater


This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.

Step into the blue by entering the AquAIRium, an immersive dry aquarium that brings sight and sound of the ocean to life in an art-science installation from the University of Salford. As you explore the underwater world you will discover more about marine biology, how the oceans work, the ethics of aquaria, conservation, and how technology is revolutionising our experience of the deep blue seas.
