Starter Kit FREE

The reusable equipment you'll need to conduct your experiments. Eight tools valued at over $50—free with our subscription.

Starter kit

This comprehensive Starter Kit contains all the equipment you'll need to conduct your experiments. It also includes accessories for your smartphone or tablet to help you learn chemistry more effectively. You'll use the items in this kit repeatedly throughout your subscription.

What’s inside:

Borosilicate glass withstands excessive heat and is great for heating liquids on a stove. It conducts heat well and is crack-resistant.

We minimize the use of glassware to make our sets safer. Where necessary, special borosilicate glassware is used to eliminate the chances of thermal cracking and shattering.

The flask and the beaker will be necessary for experiments that require you to heat the reagents.

The Molecular Viewer uses a virtual reality headset inspired by Google Cardboard. Just insert your smartphone to get started!

The MEL Chemistry app allows you to explore molecules and crystal lattices. With the Molecular Viewer, you will even be able to immerse yourself into any given substance and explore its structure from the inside.

In addition to the MEL Chemistry app, you can use the Viewer for hundreds of third-party applications including games and 3D maps.

Turn your smartphone into a portal to virtual reality!

The world of chemical reactions is incredibly beautiful! However, to see its hidden glory, you will need high magnification.

The Starter Kit contains a special macro lens that can turn almost any smartphone or tablet into a microscope able to capture amazing pictures and videos of your experiments.

All experiments included in MEL Chemistry sets are accompanied by video instructions and contain detailed descriptions and exciting assignments.

Every time you conduct an experiment, just set up your smartphone or tablet in front of you and launch the MEL Chemistry app to start your guided journey through the world of chemistry.

For your convenience, we supply a special stand that fits any smartphone or tablet.

This stand will also help you take beautiful videos of your experiments by providing support and a proper angle for shooting video.

Still have questions?

Check out our frequently asked questions below, or contact us to ask something else.

Which set will I receive if I start now instead of starting at the beginning of the school year?

You will receive an experiment set with experiments illustrating a designated topic. One new topic is introduced each month. You can check the full list of topics for the entire subscription to see which sets you can receive each month. The topics are looped such that the start date of your subscription does not matter; you will eventually receive all the experiment sets.

How much does it cost?

Please visit our registration page to check out the prices.

Are the experiments safe?

Yes, they are. We have made every effort to ensure that our experiments are as safe as possible:

  • The European Committee for Standardization (CEN) has compiled a special list of substances that are allowed in children’s chemistry sets (EN 71-4). We only use substances from this list.
  • None of our experiments include explosions.
  • We painstakingly identify the safest way to carry out each experiment.
  • All experiments have been tested in schools and/or in after-school clubs.
  • Each experiment includes very detailed, visual step-by-step instructions.
Can I buy an individual experiment kit?

Currently there is no such option; however, we hope to introduce this opportunity in the near future.

Can I order additional reagents to repeat the experiment?

Each experiment set includes enough reagents to conduct each experiment at least twice. Since our kits are often shipped internationally, we cannot offer replacements for individual reagents. We can, however, provide replacements for whole kits.

Does each set contain enough reagents to repeat an experiment several times?

The vast majority of the experiment sets include enough reagents to conduct each experiment at least twice.

Can I cancel or pause my subscription?

You can cancel your monthly subscription at any time with a few clicks from your profile. Please note that prepaid subscriptions can be canceled or paused only through support@melscience.com. You can still pause a prepaid subscription for up to 3 months from your profile. Feel free to reactivate your subscription at any time; we keep track of your order history, so you don't need to worry about receiving any redundant sets or Starter Kits.

Do I need to pay for shipping?

Depending on your location, there may be a small shipping surcharge included in your monthly bill. Shipping is free to the majority of countries we sell to. You will find shipping prices for your country on the check-out page.

How can I pay for my subscription?

We currently accept payment by Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.

Can I buy a MEL Chemistry subscription as a gift?

We currently offer 9- and 12- month gift subscriptions. These options are available at discounted rates, as they are bulk proposals. Please select the "Buy as a gift" option on the registration page.
