About our team
We’re a fast growing VC backed EdTech company, improving science education world-wide. We combine hands-on experiments with virtual reality to make our science sets completely interactive, bringing chemistry to life!
Our vlogger will quite literally help to show how science education can be fun. You’ll create engaging, interesting, educational vlogs about our exciting products and share them across relevant social media channels. You’ll target our relevant consumer markets including children between the ages of 8 and 12, their parents and of course, schools!
Easy But Deep!
We believe that science could be explained in simple words without much compromise on depth of explanation. Just check some of these examples:
There is no need for science to be explained in a boring way. The fact that we want to provide accurate and deep explanation does not mean we cannot be fun and interesting. Look at some of the greatest scientists like Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Cox, Michael Stevens (Vsauce), Derek Muller (Veritasium), Destin Sandlin (SmarterEveryDay), etc. They all know how to combine serious science with engaging and interesting story-telling.
You should have the skills and desire to explain science simply and attractively. It’s absolutely essential that you have a Science degree, or the equivalent level of science qualification. We’d love you to have studied Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Biochemistry. You’ll be an avid social media user, passionate about what we do and you’ll be able to create fantastic video content for various platforms!
What will you do?
Create compelling vlogs related to our products. You’ll conduct science experiments in front of the camera to show how our products work and can improve science education and explain the science behind those experiments.
We have a platform for your talent
With fast growing social media of more than one million followers your talent will have a great platform to make a real impact on science education. You will become a star people recognize.
Who would we like?
You’ll be a graduate in a Science subject with a passion for Science Education, that’s essential. You’ll have excellent academics. Your communications skills will be superlative, you’ll be comfortable in front of a camera and quite happy to conduct simple experiments under film! Proactive, resilient and resourceful, you’ll be able to conduct relevant research and trend analysis and plan your vlogs accordingly. You’ll be fluent in spoken written English. A strong team player and adept at building mutually effective business relationships.
If you’d like to progress your career in a startup that’s impacting the world of Science Education, and you can produce a simple video explaining why we should hire you, then please tell us more about yourself.
We offer great progression within a fast-moving, growing environment, as well as a highly desirable role.
Due to the high nature of applications, we’ll only be able to reply to those with relevant academics and experience!
CASE STUDY - Cristal Steele using MEL Chemistry VR in class
Science teacher, Cristal Steele, explains why she loves MEL Chemistry VR and how it improves focus and comprehension. Cristal has loved science all her life. She started teaching so she could share her passion for science with the next generation. Now she’s setting up a purpose-built virtual reality and augmented reality science lab and maker space at Beach High School. On the request list was MEL Chemistry VR, a science resource that she first tried in 2018 for her previous school. Here, Cristal shares her experience of bringing VR into the classroom and how it improved focus and comprehension.
MEL Science launches the first AR-powered educational subscription for kids
Today, we launch a new product – MEL Kids, a monthly subscription for children 5-10 years of age. The new subscription combines hands-on experiments with AR app to translate difficult science concepts into friendly and comprehensive visuals. The project aims to teach kids to approach and solve real-life problems logically by equipping them with an understanding of the scientific principles behind everyday objects.
