Today at the Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC), zSpace Inc., Silicon Valley-based edtech provider, and MEL Science, London-based VR and hands-on learning science education specialists, announced a partnership to bring MEL Science’s curriculum-based chemistry courses to zSpace’s augmented and virtual (AR/VR) education platform.

This partnership delivers the MEL Chemistry application and lesson plans to millions of students around the world, expanding content available to zSpace users. As of today, 10 activities for middle school and 39 for high school are available through MEL Chemistry, including lessons and makerspace labs that provide open-ended creation opportunities and hands-on learning activities.

With MEL Chemistry on zSpace, students use AR and VR to experience being inside pure substances, mixtures, and even atoms. MEL Chemistry provides  visualization and explanation of chemistry concepts - from atoms to molecules, including the periodic table, gas laws, and isomerism. 

zSpace will be at FETC in Miami, January 15 - 17, 2020, demonstrating MEL Chemistry in booth 1002.
