MEL Chemistry VR Lessons
Experience a new level of understanding science in VR.
28 VR lessons and tests covering the school chemistry curriculum.
Improve your class performance by up-to-date educational techniques
MEL Chemistry VR lessons are aligned with the school chemistry curriculum, covering all of its main topics.
Difficult chemistry concepts are easily explained – the ability to interact with educational material builds up solid knowledge and long term memory.
One lesson is 3-7 minutes long and is easily integrated into the classic lesson flow, just making the subject more visual and comprehensive.

Control the lesson flow using the special teacher mode with a few touches of your tablet:
- Instantly connect to all the student devices
- Start and pause the lesson
- Control the progress of each student
VR brings chemistry education to a new level
Understanding, not memorizing
To understand chemistry, you have to understand what is happening on the molecular level. Just memorizing formulas and facts is not enough.
And 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 starts in a lab and then we zoom in to the molecular level.
Imagine your are able to shrink a billion times, like Ant-man, allowing you to see what otherwise would remain invisible.
Chemistry is difficult because you have to connect the macro and micro worlds in an overall concept, and see how they are linked. VR makes this very visual.
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 kids out of their surroundings. Children 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 lessons. 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.
