Meet MEL Physics – the new MEL Science subscription!
Physics experiments and VR lessons for 8-14 year-olds
MEL Science is launching MEL Physics, a new subscription that expands upon the shift in science education that MEL Chemistry started 6 years ago and MEL Kids continued in 2019.
MEL Physics takes the same approach as our previous products – revolutionizing education with a unique combination of hands-on experiments and high-tech learning experiences in virtual and augmented reality.
Engaging kids with awe-inspiring demonstrations and fun experiments is crucial as a first step to making learning efficient and memorable. These experiences are then reinforced with interactive VR simulations explaining the underlying science.
As neither approach is sufficient on its own, our products strive to appeal to both emotion and intellect.
Like our other subscriptions, MEL Physics is not just a STEM box, but a collection of tools that includes:
- exciting physics experiments
- VR lessons
- a mobile app with detailed scientific explanations
- online lessons with science teachers.
To add to the educational value, we’ve made it a monthly subscription. Science won’t be put aside and forgotten once the fun is over, as can happen with a store-bought science kit – a MEL Physics set delivered to your door every month will help you incorporate science into your regular learning curriculum.
Our social media following of over 3 million people speaks to our growing connection with children all over the world – including 1 million followers on TikTok, a network that predominantly resonates with teenagers.
But in addition to being engaging, MEL Science products demonstrably lead to better educational outcomes. Research by the New Jersey Institute of Technology has shown that MEL Science VR lessons help students perform better in class and on final exams.
Our products are translated into 7 languages and are loved in 60+ countries around the world. MEL Physics is currently available only in the USA, but we plan to begin shipments to other countries as soon as possible.
Physics holds a special place in our hearts – and here’s why:
"To this day, I vividly remember the first lesson in my new school’s Physics lab. It was a paradise for kids: just imagine, a lab full of everything, all imaginable tools and devices – and you could use everything you wanted, perform almost any experiment you could think of. We even had Experimental Physics as a separate subject! My newfound love for Physics led me to win the National Physics Olympiad, then to my degree in Quantum Field Theory, then programming, then IT entrepreneurship. The scientific method I learned worked everywhere. When the startup I founded was acquired, I decided I want to help millions of kids fall in love with science the way I did. I dream of giving children around the world the experiences I was gifted in my Physics class, whether in school or at home." — Vassili Philippov, MEL Science CEO and founder
These and other safe home experiments are waiting for you in the MEL Physics subscription. Sign up to see science in all its beauty and depth!
