Company description

Our vision is to engage more students in chemistry using virtual reality. We believe that easily accessible smartphone apps and gamification is the means to motivate students to discovery the fascinating world of atoms and molecules.

Chemistry is by many seen as a dull and dry subject, often because it is abstract and difficult to understand. As a consequence, we have witnessed a decline in chemistry university students. This is unfortunate since more chemists are needed to innovate life science products that makes people healthier and cleaner, as well as to solve environmental issues. Among many other things.

To engage students and inspire further studies we gamify chemistry education by user-friendly smartphone apps for simple Google Cardboards. With EduChem VR apps, teachers and students can enter virtual worlds of atoms and molecules to help understanding, while amazed by the feeling of presence.

Virtual reality experiences can improve the understanding of abstract concepts (like atoms and bonds), and it has been shown that when you put a person in a place, they are more likely to remember it. Thus, virtual reality is ideal for educational purposes.
