My son and hubby are closer than ever since my husband doesn’t usually get much of a chance to help our son with school work. This helps them both enjoy their love of science together.

Best birthday gift ever! The VR part is totally mind blowing. The app contributes a lot to the fun and learning, but you can still keep it screen free doing just these science subscription boxes.

Keith McConnail, NY

A great way to incorporate real science into homeschool — as close as having a science lab as you can get at home. Safe and clean to keep parents calm and so much fun learning for the kids!

What does the subscription consist of?
The physical aspect of the MEL Science subscription consists of monthly delivery of a box with hands-on experiments covering a designated topic. Digitally, you receive access to VR/AR lessons packs, as well as access to live webinars conducted by rock-star science teachers. Every subscriber also gets access to the MEL Science app, where you can find a virtual assistant to make the experiments easier and a wide range of science content.

Subscriptions start at £21.90/mo.
What is the recommended age range for the product?
When you press “Get started” you will be offered a choice of courses with the recommended age range beside each one.
Are the experiments safe?
Yes, they are. We have made every effort to ensure that our experiments are as safe as possible:
  • MEL Science kits comply with the US CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) requirements for educational sets and have confirmation from the CPSC Official on this.
  • 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 with kids.
  • Each experiment includes very detailed, visual step-by-step instructions.
Can I buy individual MEL Science kits?
Currently there is no such option; however, we hope to introduce this opportunity in the near future.
