MEL VR Science Simulations

Experience a new level of understanding science in VR or 3D.
Over 70 VR lessons and tests covering the school chemistry and physics curriculums.

Improve your class performance by up-to-date educational techniques

MEL VR Science Simulations are aligned with the school chemistry and physics curriculums, covering the main topics.

Difficult concepts are easily explained — the ability to interact with educational material builds up solid knowledge and long term memory.

Each lesson, lab, and simulation is between 3–7 minutes long and is easily integrated into the classic lesson flow, making the subject more visual and comprehensive.

How it works

I found myself wanting to show the lessons to my class immediately

VR brings chemistry and physics education to a new level

Understanding, not memorizing

To understand chemistry and physics, you have to understand what is happening on the molecular and atomic level. Just memorizing formulas and facts is not enough.

What could be a better way to understand the behavior of atoms, ions, and molecules than to put yourself inside chemical reactions, to see all these particles with your own eyes.

Connecting the real world with the world of molecules

Each lesson, lab, or simulation starts in a lab and then zooms in to the molecular level.

Imagine being able to shrink a billion times, like Ant-man, allowing you to see what otherwise would remain invisible.

Chemistry and physics are difficult because you have to connect the macro and micro worlds in an overall concept and see how they are linked.

Interactive experiments with atoms and molecules

We do not mimic a classic lab, but provide interactive lessons where kids can conduct experiments on atoms and molecules that are otherwise impossible:

  • build your own atom
  • build your own molecule
  • measure bond energies
  • play with ionization energy, etc.


VR takes students out of their surroundings. They can focus 100 percent on their lessons without distractions.

If you’ve ever tried to convince kids to focus on their studying, rather than texting, chit-chatting, etc. while they "study", you know exactly what we are talking about.

Short 3–7 minute long sessions. After 3–7 minutes, a child’s ability to keep absorbing new information drops. But during these minutes, their attention is complete and their learning is intense.
