My family just did our first experiment, the sugar snake. It took us 2 tries to get it to work but when it did, it was amazing to watch. My boys liked the ashes it created (after cooling of course). Thank you for creating this science. I love that it has many different "sciences" to explore. We, as homeschoolers, are excited to see what the rest of the years Mel's science will bring.

Melscience kits are a fantastic way to dive into the fun and wonder of playing with elements. When kids say they want to study chemistry, this is usually what they mean.

Homeschooling for College Credit

Homeschooling for College Credit

We started our Chemistry subscription this summer. We are using Mel Science for our lab, and I have to say, I have been exceptionally impressed. Superior to the chemistry sets I've bought in the past and a lot more forward thinking than my college chemistry class. We do a Mel Lab every Friday with my 6th and 10th grader. Easily adapts to both levels. Seriously, love this product.

Starter Kit and VR headset

In your first month, you will receive a Starter Kit with all the equipment you’ll need to conduct your experiments.

Our subscription is accompanied by a mobile app — the key to your with VR experience. You will receive your headset in your first package.
