When I was a kid in school my two least favorite subjects were math and science. I hated math because I am just not good at it (to this day I still stink at it) and I remember being bored in science class. Now that I am an adult, I wish I had listened more in science because a lot of that knowledge is relevant in my adult life, but hey – I thought I knew it all back then and wouldn’t have listened to my future self anyways.
Anyhow, now I’m the mom and both of my boys love science and math. They especially like science and because of that, we do lots of science experiments in our house. It makes my heart happy that they are learning and don’t even know it. Because my boys love doing science experiments so much, when MEL Science asked me to check out some of their chemistry sets I just couldn’t refuse. Especially since the kids are on summer vacation and I want to make sure I keep their brains active while they’re away from school.
MEL Science is changing science education through a subscription service of nearly 100 interactive chemistry sets chocked full of experiments per year with free mobile apps for iPads, iPhones, Android smartphones and tablets. Even cooler, MEL Science kits are VR-based, and the kit’s complementary Google Cardboard device integrates perfectly with VR to emphasize 3D graphics, macro photos, and videos that allow both kids, parents, and science buffs to view molecules up-close. Here’s a YouTube video of the MEL Science chemistry kit in action.
