My son is 12 and MEL Chemistry continues to inspire and encourage his fascination with chemistry. The experiments with expanded explanations through the smartphone app and website links add a greater depth than most of the science toys available.

From 10 years and up, any child can be a scientist!

We received our MEL Chemistry kit last week. We downloaded the app and put together the VR glasses before starting an experiment. Both took only a couple minutes, and my daughter enjoyed viewing molecules with the glasses. The kit is user-friendly and had enough reagents to run each experiment a few times. She made the sugar snake and tin hedgehog. They both worked well and she had a lot of fun.
I am very impressed with how MEL has organized the kits and support for the experiments, they were worth the wait!

I signed up to supplement my son's science instruction (he's homeschooled). He was most excited at first about getting his own set of Google Cardboard, but he really enjoys the experiments. He's invited his cousin along and now we have "science day" at Grandma's and we all do the experiments together. It's a lot of fun and the kids really think it is neat. I like it because it is stoking their interest in science and showing them that it can be a lot of fun.

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.
What is the age recommendation for MEL Chemistry experiments?

We recommend that children be 10 years or older in general; however, with careful parental supervision and an inquisitive attitude, children as young as 6 can enjoy and learn from our experiments.

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 subscription at any time with one click from your profile. You can also 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.
