What you need?

Professor Why™ can be installed on a regular computer with Windows or Mac OSX operating system. If you are equipped with a web camera and edu-cards you can play in extended mode, which provides Augmented Reality technology for having a chemical laboratory on your desk. If you have no webcam - do not worry - you can still perform the same experiments in a virtual laboratory using a computer mouse.




requires webcam and a set of edu-cards


requires only computer mouse


recommended requirements: operating system Windows XP SP2 or later, Mac OSX 10.8 or later • processor 2 GHz Dual Core (Intel Core 2 Duo or better, AMD Athlon X2 or better) • RAM memory 4 GB • graphic card nVidia GeForce 8600 512 MB or better, AMD HD2600 XT or better • hard drive 10 GB of free space • webcam (augmented reality mode) or computer mouse (standard mode)


...we are really satisfied with the game. An important advantage is the ability to play with Augmented Reality. We liked the formula of a mission (to rebuild the vehicle), diversity (not just experiments, but also a bit of history along with a dynamic quiz). What is fascinating, both 8 and 10 year olds begin to use the language of chemistry without embarrassment ... because they experience the basics of chemistry in the form of fun and games, and not as a school subject.
