MEL Physics is a monthly subscription box for kids 8-14+ who would like to learn more about how the world around them works. Through exciting experiments kids can learn all about electrostatic energy, luminescence, reflections, and even invisibility! Each month contains a new experiment and physics lesson for kids to dive into, and will contain everything they need to safely and easily complete at home.

This month we reviewed the Vision Physics box from MEL Physics.

MEL Physics: Vision Physics

 

Does anyone else out there feel like summer is flying by and nothing has been accomplished? My goals for the summer were to paint our kitchen and keep the boys consistent with some at "home school" curriculum, and somehow I still don't have a painted kitchen, and the only thing consistent with my curriculum plan is our MEL Physics box! That being said, I cannot recommend this box enough!

Not only are the kids excited to receive these kits in the mail, but they love the projects they receive. Paired with the app, we couldn't wait to see where this month's theme would take us. Read below to find out what we discovered.

Organized neatly by project, all components are packaged neatly in separate baggies and laid out in an orderly fashion. Charlie was excited when he saw this month's supplies, and couldn't wait to dig in.

MEL Physics "Vision Physics" Projects

Project Booklet

 

Included with this month's project was a well organized instruction booklet. Besides the written instructions being very detailed, the illustrations are helpful as well. With interesting facts and the science to back them, this booklet was very informative and essential for this month's build.

Spectrum Googles

 

This month varied a little bit from previous months because the main project is utilized in all of the following projects. To build the spectrum googles, we received stickers, cushions, wooden goggle pieces, filter frames, an elastic strap, and filters. These materials were good quality and fit together well.

 

This particular box theme is geared to kids ages 8 and up. Because Charlie is 8 he wanted to give this box a go without any help. Utilizing the instructions, he was able to create these googles very easily. This kit was extremely user friendly as there are printed lines on the wood where each sticker goes, making it basically fool proof. The stickers are a little tricky to peel off, so I suggest not cutting your kids' fingernails too short ahead of this project so they are able to peel the papers off. 😂 As you can see in these photos, this project was pretty simple and Charlie had the goggles created in mere minutes.

Optical Filters

 

Once the goggles were put together, Charlie inserted the optical filters. First placing the red filters in, he looked at the red maze. Because this filter only allows the dark color through, he could easily see the maze whereas without the googles had a hard time. Changing the red filters out for the blue ones, he took a look at the other included puzzle and discovered hidden strawberries! Lastly, he used one blue and one red lens and a 3D effect took place. Awesome!

Chameleon Vision

While the second project utilizes the already created goggles, this one does still involve some assembly. To create our chameleon googles, Charlie received folder paper pieces, mirror inserts, circular paper frames, and decorative stickers.

 

Another easy assembly, Charlie was able to whip these eyes up in a flash. His favorite part was adding the cartoon eyes! Replacing the light filters with the chameleon vision inserts, he took a look at the included maze using the mirrored glasses. Because of the ability to seeing different directions, he got dizzy and was really happy to be a human!

Final Thoughts - Was This Box Worth It?

Absolutely! The Vision Physics box was one of Charlie's favorites. Besides the fact that he was able to create this entire kit all on his own, this was awesomely educational while being fun. Incorporating reading, engineering, physics, and fun all into one, my failing summer school curriculum has been saved by MEL! This subscription is a great fit for my family, and a wonderful project for us to experience together, all while learning about science.

I also want to note that there are always additional experiments that you can do online with these boxes if your child is so inclined. I have downloaded the app and have found a ton of extra experiments, awards, AR and VR opportunities, and more! Check it out!
