Results and Impact Outer Space | Inner Space is a science communication venture, creating an adaptable immersive space at the iconic Mills Observatory, supported by an interactive, science outreach programme to promote cutting-edge research from the University of Dundee. The Mills Observatory in the heart of Dundee provides a unique location to develop, trial and offer public engagement activity that is immersive, uses multimodal-presentation techniques through a room-filling visual presentation screen, allowing visitors of all ages and abilities to engage with and explore the wonders of the research taking place in the School.

As part of this venture a free event - Guardians of the Genome - was held to engage with the general public and teach them about DNA through the use of themed games, and activities hosted by scientists from the University of Dundee's School of Life Sciences. This included an immersive virtual reality game called Guardians of the Genome. Around 50 people attended, mostly consisting of young families and students.
