Subscription Box Review
My first glimpse inside the kit from MEL Science.
Everything that came in my box from MEL Science Kids.
So what is all this stuff?
Inside my box is a little card (you get one of these for each project that you do.)
As well as a little sticker.
There’s also a template for the jack.
Inside the box are two packages with all the components of our hydraulic jack.
There’s also this cool Mystery Planet Map
Which functions a lot like a Look & Find
Every box from MEL Science also comes with a comic book.
This is a cute way to get kids interested in the project.
The comic is also incorporated into the instructions of our project. This project is called Jungle Jack
I love how they even incorporate the comic book aspect into the instructions. I also love the simplicity of the instructions as well.
Okay, so now what?
Now we do the project.
First though, Oliver did the Look & Find thing.
Then we assembled the jack. This was not as difficult as it looked and was really interesting to see come together (even as an adult).
Here it is after we built it!
So in summary
Presentation: Everything is packaged well and arrived to me perfectly in my box from MEL Science
Quality: I felt like the quality of this project was really awesome. It was easy to assemble but yielded something really cool that Oliver could feel good about making.
Curation: Considering the project is created for kids and includes everything you need I’d say the curation is great!

The project that I received in our MEL Science project for the month was really cool and easy to assemble.
