What is it?

Professor Why™ Chemistry was made with world curious teenagers (age between 10-16) in mind and as a helping hand for teachers that would like to invest in education and are looking for alternative and modern solutions. The experiments in the game coincide with the core curriculum (primaty schools), but there are also extra-curricular tasks. For schools we have also prepared specially designed lesson scenarios, thanks to which you can conduct attractive lessons using multimedia boards.

enjoy the science!

Professor Why™

Virtual Chemical Laboratory

Professor Why™ Chemistry is a computer virtual chemical laboratory, which enables you to perform dozens of chemistry experiments in a safe, virtual laboratory.

The high definition 3D graphics perfectly mimic equipment, substances and flasks from a real laboratory.

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 or interactive board.

The lesson was really very good and useful! I would like to have more such lessons. The lessons are very very interesting. Such tools motivate me to learn STEM subjects;-)

School offer


Professor Why™ Chemistry is a game that helps teenagers understand a complicated world of chemistry and let them carry out their own chemical experiments in a safe way in a virtual laboratory using Augmented Reality technology.

This is a fantastic alternative for schools that will be able to teach without limitations through conducting experiments even if so far for various reasons it was physically unachievable (health and safety issues, lack of chemical reagents and utensils , problem of waste treatment, dysfunctions). Teachers appreciate innovative technology. They admit that the game is very well received by students who thanks to it aquires knowledge from lessons easier than in the case of traditional exercises with a textbook. The product also enjoys the recognition of scientific authorities.

[...] I learn a lot thanks to these lessons! It is better than boring lessons with textbooks!

Chemistry is a great complement to school activities, contains experience in accordance with the core curriculum for primary schools as well as experiments allowing to expand knowledge and increase the effectiveness of education STEM subjects in accordance with the priorities of the Lisbon Strategy. Chemistry has gained considerable media coverage, largely due to the awards and titles won. However, the title was also honored by representatives of the scientific community and the users themselves who are willing to share their opinions with us.
