Karina Price

ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology, University of Western Australia
Science Communications Officer, Virtual Plant Cell Project Lead
Karina Price is a Science Communicator who is responsible for the Education and Outreach activity of a world-leading Australian plant research Centre. She has led development and delivery of the Virtual Plant Cell (VPC), a unique and expanding suite of immersive, educational and curriculum-aligned virtual reality and 360° video experiences. VPC lets its users explore, interact with and learn about the sub-microscopic inner world of a plant and discover how global agricultural challenges can be tackled through science innovation. VPC has broken ground for comprehensive curriculum-aligned, educational VR content and use in the last few years, establishing value of VR for education through studies demonstrating measurable improvements in educational outcomes, enhanced interest and engagement by students and value recognition by teachers. Using VPC, Karina has led activity to establish viable methodologies for the practical and effective classroom use of low-barrier-to-entry through to high end VR, as well as the use of VR for engaging public audiences in STEM.
