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.

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 recieve two sets with specific chemistry topics.

100% safe

The kits comply with European safety norms EN 71-4. There are no experiments with explosions.

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!

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

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.

Look at all the interesting things your child can study over one and a half years

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. You can check the full list of topics for the entire subscription to see what sets you can receive each month. The topics are looped so that the start date of your subscription does not matter; you will eventually receive all the experiment sets.

How much does it cost?

Each month you will be receiving a pair of experiment sets. 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

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.
