Mobile application MEL Science
MEL Science creates chemical experiment kits, and we have developed an app for them, which helps kids do DIY-experiments.
The app introduces kids to chemistry, gives hints on experiments and helps them solve practical problems. MEL Science’s target group is kids in the US and Europe.
The MEL Science app already existed when they came to us. They wanted to improve UX and add a few features.
To work with MEL Science was easy — we communicated directly with the Business Owner, and he turned out to be an iOS-developer as well 😉 Needless to say, we used scrum.
Testing the app
When the kit assistant was ready and after we had implemented the feature to display 3D animated chemical elements, we went “into the field”.
We gave the kits and mobile phones with the open app to kids of one of the Saint Petersburg schools and set a task to make experiments. Every kid made 3 experiments and looked at molecules and atoms of elements in 3D.
Based on the results of the focus groups, we fixed the location of buttons and functional blocks.
