My son loved his first delivery! He is 11 and it was so easy for him to do with me supervising! I love the app also can’t wait to see the next one!

From 8 years and up, any child can be a scientist!

Ferrofluid

An amazing liquid substance that forms bizarre patterns with a magnet

Vacuum chamber

Marshmallows in a vacuum chamber are inflated with internal air

Rainbow plastic

Internal stress makes a plastic ruler shimmer in polarized light

Electric motor

The ring spins only with the help of a battery and magnets

Hydrophobic sand

Sand remains dry even in water due to a special coating

Luminescent lightning

Orbeez + mystery liquid + light beam = ...lightning?

Why choose MEL Physics?

Expertly built by scientists and parents

Our team has 10 PhDs in science—and a growing number of children of all ages. As scientists and parents, we know what we’re doing (and who we’re doing it for).

Cutting-edge technology

We use Virtual Reality to bring learning to a new level of understanding. Our VR lessons cover all the basic topics of a standard school curriculum.

Proven to improve academic performance

Research conducted by the New Jersey Institute of Technology shows that our lessons help children score higher on exams.

Thoroughly tested in laboratories

Our products comply with American Consumer Product Safety Commission standards. That means they meet the strictest criteria.

Education disguised as entertainment

More than 2.5 million followers worldwide enjoy watching our science videos on social media. And doing the experiments yourself is even more fun!

Explore science together

What's in the kits?

Physics set

Everything you need! Our kits come with all necessary hardware, components, and instructions to conduct the experiments successfully.

Your kids will learn how these everyday devices work by assembling them themselves

We often don’t understand how many of our everyday devices work, such as loudspeakers, cell phone microphones, FM car radios, or electric motors. With MEL Physics, your kids will acquire this understanding effectively by assembling their own devices!

Radio

Loudspeaker

Wind turbine

Projector

Microphone

Electric motor

Go deeper with our mobile app

The supplementary MEL Physics app lets you take science education to the next level.

  • Step-by-step experiment guides
  • Video explanations of the science behind the experiments
  • Daily feed of interesting science facts

We have really loved our monthly science subscription this year, #melsciencekits. As homeschoolers is sometimes challenging finding time for #quality science projects and time to shop for supplies. They are super fun!

Here’s what the media says about us

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?

$34.90 monthly

Are the experiments safe?

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

  • We comply with the US CPSC (Consumer product Safety Commission) requirements for educational sets and have confirmation from the CPSC Official on this
  • We painstakingly identify the safest way to carry out each experiment.
  • All experiments have been tested in schools and/or in after-school clubs.
  • We have spent more than 1,000 hours testing our products with kids of different ages
  • Each experiment includes 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 components to make one more science project/ repeat the experiments?

Each experiment set includes enough components to conduct each experiment. Since our kits are often shipped internationally, we cannot offer replacements for individual components.

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

The vast majority of the experiment sets include enough components to conduct each experiment. In most cases, your child will assemble a mechanism or setup that can be used an unlimited number of times.

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.

Do I need to pay for shipping?

No. We are happy to offer free delivery across all the US.

How can I pay for my subscription?

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

To which countries do you ship MEL Physics sets?

Currently, we ship to the US only. We plan to add Europe shortly.

We are a school; can we subscribe to this service?

Please contact our customer support service at +1 (855) 971‑2330 or schools@melscience.com to discuss introducing MEL Physics to your classrooms.

It’s time to dive into the world of physics!
