Spend time together in an interesting and educational way
Why kits with MEL Chemistry experiments are useful for your child
Education and entertainment go hand in hand
For every experiment you get a detailed description, which will help your child to gain a full understanding of each experiment.
A fun and interesting way of spending time together
Spend the weekend together doing an interesting and useful activity, and over the next few days your child can find out more about science independently using our app and website.
Makes science more entertaining
With our interesting and diverse experiments, your child can study science in practice, not in theory.
4-6 new experiments every month
Once a month you will get two kits with 4-6 different experiments.
The kits comply with European safety norms EN 71-4. There are no experiments with explosions.
What's in the kits?
Each MEL Chemistry kit contains everything you need to conduct experiments:
- Chemical reagents
- Additional components
- Graphic, step-by-step instructions
- Tasks that turn science into a game
App for studying chemistry
Use the special app from MEL Chemistry to study chemistry in more depth.
Turn your smartphone or tablet into a virtual microscope, through which you can look at molecules and atoms in 3D, just like in a film!
- Molecules and crystals in 3D
- Virtual reality mode
- Video with experiments
You will get a Starter Kit to kick-start your subscription
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.<br> I am very impressed with how MEL has organized the kits and support for the experiments, they were worth the wait!
MEL Chemistry kits will suit your child if:
Your child is interested in science and aged from 9 to 14
The school curriculum doesn't have enough practical chemistry lessons
Your child hasn't started studying chemistry at school yet, but you want to inspire them with an interest in science
Your child is in home schooling
Look at all the interesting things your child can study over one and a half years
A zinc pellet turns into a hedgehog!
Liquid instatly turns into hot ice!

Any more questions?
Read the answers to frequently asked questions or ask your own question.
What set will I receive if I start now, instead of starting at the beginning of the school year?
Each month there are two new topics; the experiment sets this month include experiments illustrating these topics. Everyone will receive the same sets each month. You can check the full list of topics for the entire year to see what sets you will receive each month. The topics are looped so that the start date of your subscription does not matter; you will eventually receive all 38 experiment sets.
How much does it cost?
Each month you will be receiving a pair of experiment kits. Please visit our registration page to check out the prices.
Is it safe?
Yes, it is. We have made every effort to ensure that our experiments are as safe as possible:
- In the EU there is 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 the experiments include explosions.
- We identified 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.
- There is an instructional video for each experiment.
How old should a child be to perform MEL Chemistry experiments?
12 years old or older
How do I use the sets if I have several kids?
There are two options:
- Order one subscription and create several child accounts on your profile. You will still receive only one box, but your children will be able to use their own individual accounts to answer questions, upload videos, etc. Most of the weekly chemistry boxes contain enough reagents for two repeats of each experiment.
- Order several subscriptions, so that each child gets his/her own box. Right now you will have to create several accounts for that.
Can I buy an individual experiment set?
Currently there is no such option.
Can I order additional reagents to repeat the experiment more times?
Each experiment set includes enough reagents to repeat each experiment at least two times. Right now, it is not possible to order more reagents from us. But you can always buy reagents from online stores.
Does each set contain enough reagents to repeat an experiment several times?
All the experiment sets include enough reagents for at least two repeats of each included experiment.
Can I cancel or pause my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription at any time, in one click from your profile. You can also reactivate your subscription at any time, you will not be billed again for the Starter kit.
Do I need to pay for shipping?
No, you do not need to pay anything additional for shipping. The shipping cost is included in the subscription price.
Can I prepay for an entire year in advance?
We charge you each month when the experiment sets are ready to be sent. There is no prepayment option.
Can I buy MEL Chemistry as a gift?
You can, but you need to create a separate account for that. There can be only one shipment address associated with each MEL Science account.
To which countries do you ship MEL Chemistry?
Our subscription is limited to the following countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, and Russia.
We are a school; can we subscribe to this service?
Right now MEL Science is limited to individuals. Please contact us and we will let you know when we are ready to start working with schools.
