HI!

I AM LEONEL VIROSTA GUTIÉRREZ

I am 23 years old, passionate about science and education and full of ideas to make the world a better place.

Now, I'm working to make them come true.

Here you can read about my projects and how I am developing them.

FlipYourLearning

My YouTube channel for biology videos, in which I have been working for 6 years so far (and around 1200 hours). It now has 60 videos, 160,000 subscribers and 10 million views.

With them, I help high school and university students across the globe in their studies, and have received more than 100,00 personal appreciation messages for it.

On July 2020 I launched this community to promote student collaboration.

Immunity

Take control of the immune system or an army of viruses and bacteria. Fight your friends. Immunity is a team-based strategic board game for 2-6 players involving action management, creative thinking, dexterity, and inspired by real science. Because the most important battles are fought inside you.

I have been working on this for almost four years. At Manchester, we received help and financing from Manchester Entrepreneurs, and playtested it with children, students and professors.

Currently, I am developing an online version so everyone can play it.

BSc. Cell Biology

Besides working on my educational projects, I have also studied Cell Biology at Manchester, graduating on June 2020.  I received over £12,000 on grants and awards, took several responsibility roles throughout my course, such as student representative and peer-assisted study sessions (PASS) leader, and got marks on the top 5% of my class in many subjects.

After finishing, I worked as an online tutor for two years, and this year I will start a master's to become a certified teacher.
