What is MEL VR Science Simulations?

Chemistry is made difficult by the need to connect the macro and micro worlds in an overall concept and understand how the two are linked. MEL Chemistry VR makes this connection visual. It makes difficult concepts intuitive and interactive to build solid knowledge and long-term memory.

We also provide interactive maker spaces where students can conduct experiments on atoms and molecules that are otherwise impossible, such as constructing your own atom or building your own molecule.

MEL Chemistry is a micro chemistry kit that come with all necessary chemicals, components, and instructions to complete successful experiments. Our aim is to make science education easy, engaging, and effective.

Recommended Usage

We recommend 1-2 VR Lessons per week, so around 15 minutes

The students need access to our MEL VR App, which can be downloaded from the Android or Apple App stores. This can be any form of phone based VR headsets, such as Google Cardboard, or an Oculus headset. They can also access a flat version of the VR environment on a phone or tablet without the headset.

For the MEL VR app to work correctly, you’ll need the following equipment:

- Phone (student device) – iPhone 5 or above, or Android 4.4 or above. iPod touch is not supported.

- Tablet (teacher device) – iPad 2015 or above or Android device 4.4 or above

- Operating System – iOS 9.0 or above and Android 4.4 or above

- VR Headset – Google Daydream, Oculus Go, Gear VR or any Google Cardboard device with a touch button and without magnet control

Certified Pedagogical Quality

Certified by Education Alliance Finland, 01/2018

EAF Evaluation is an academically-backed approach to evaluating the pedagogical design of a product. EAF evaluators assess the product using criteria that covers the most essential pedagogical aspects in the learning experience.
Interactivity is supported in every lesson through moving inside the matter, quizzes and molecule building activities. Active learning by doing is engaging students to exploration and building understanding through testing things, playing and making. Connecting the chemistry concepts with the real world is an important part of the experience.
The solution supports building new understanding through high-quality lessons. The visual demonstrations help to understand the abstract concepts as student gets to experience them in an immersive way. Lesson voice-overs are well structured and comprehensive, providing relevant information that helps to understand what is being seen. Quizzes and interactions give instant feedback for learners.
The solution provides equal learning paths for everyone, yet the students can study in their own pace and learning outcomes can still be predicted relatively accurately. This is a practical choice and helps the classroom use where teacher needs to plan lessons according to the curriculum goals. Some activities facilitate open exploration and students can freely try and explore different chemical reactions, which brings a creative element to the learning.
The solution does not require any social interaction as part of the learning experience. It allows users to progress in their own pace and focus on the things that matter the most for them. This individual approach is well pedagogically justified as learners do need this type of quiet, self-imposed and autonomic experiences. Discussions and social learning activities are hard to do when wearing the VR gear, so it’s better to leave them to happen outside of the use of MEL Chemistry VR.
