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
