I’ve been seeing ads for the MEL chemistry box. I was not disappointed with my purchase. We got the package out over a school break and had fun learning together. We had my 11 and 13 year old work together. We all got to observe the reactions. All of the pieces were quality so we felt safe following the instructions and learning together.

I have received my first MEL Kids set about hydraulics and it’s amazing! The quality of the materials is good and the step-by-step instructions are easy to follow. A comic story leads you through serious concepts like pressure and molecules; while I couldn't quite appreciate it myself, I think it kept my niece engaged.
Eventually, we've built a hydraulics lift with just syringes and tubes, and I think she's quite ready to lift the house with it. The tubes come off occasionally, but an improvised water gun battle can be fun too.
P.S.: I've taken a photo of the kit's contents before we've assembled it; sorry for the mess on the floor. A good 80% of it has been covered with toys ever since COVID.
P.P.S.: it has some wooden pieces, and if you're into the smell of fresh-cut wood, you're gonna love this one!

I ordered a six month subscription for my kids back in May. We received a beautiful May box, June came and went and I emailed because I never received the June box. I was sent the replacement Egypt box which was miniscule and disappointing. July came and went and nothing was received. I emailed again and have not heard a response back. What is going on? This was supposed to be for homeschool enrichment and this company is not dependable. Really Disappointed. Avoid.

MEL Science is absolutely amazing! I've never seen a STEM product that combines hands-on experiments with VR and AR technologies and live lessons with science teachers. That's really a lot for the price!
My son was so excited about VR lessons - he said it was like being an Antman. Even for us parents traveling inside molecules in virtual reality was a blast! And the experiments were a lot of fun too. Along with the explanations from teachers, it all makes a 360-degree educational experience!

This is without doubt, the best chemistry kit available. It is an incredibly rich way for pupils to experience real chemistry and not just stare at a screen to see this magical subject. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

My children really enjoyed this experience! While the lockdown homeschooling was a bit boring and totally online, so there was a huge lack of the real life knowledge. The MelScience kits really helped us to add lots of fun and joy to the educational process and made my children happier!
Also it helped me - as I was running out of new ideas of how to get my children excited with studying during the lockdown :)
So - 5 out of 5! :)

Glad to hear that our product supplemented your learning program well!
