Electric Boat

What is MEL Science?

Educational subscription boxes with breathtaking hands-on experiments, powered by immersive AR & VR lessons and live online classes. Our products are a great fit for aspiring scientists ages 5–14, science teachers, schools, and homeschooling parents.

What is the MEL Science purpose?

We are breaking the stereotype that science is boring, difficult, and only for certain types of people. We strive to make serious science accessible, interesting, and cool. Science is about exploration, experiments, discovery, and asking questions – all of which comes naturally to all children. We believe that every child is a scientist.

We help nurture children’s natural interest in science by giving them:

  • fun hands-on experiments to engage

  • serious, detailed explanations to learn

  • VR and AR technologies to dive deeper

What is the Electric Boat set?

Have you ever played with a battery-powered toy? Do you know where a battery gets its power from? With the “Electric Boat” set by MEL Science, not only will you construct your own battery – you'll also build a toy boat that can use it to sail! The AR app will show you what each part of the battery is for, and how electric current appears in the wires!

You will:

  • Construct a real battery

  • Make your own boat

  • Combine the two to make the boat sail on battery power

You will learn:

  • What parts a battery consists of

  • How batteries work

  • How to power a boat with your own battery

  • Instructions are very visual no need to read.

  • It works as expected.

  • Comes with a book and a story that goes along with the project. (My kids loved this!)

  • Sometimes the wooded pieces won't fit easily.
