Museum of Science and Industry kicks off 2014 Summer Brain Games program

Summer is in full swing! But these next couple of weeks are going to fly by. Don't forget to squeeze in some summer learning! Kids need to keep their brains active and engaged during this extended break from school.  The Museum of Science and Industry is  inviting families to combat the summer “brain drain” by throwing a science-themed carnival through the annual Summer Brain Games program. It’s a great opportunity to keep kids of all ages engaged and have some family fun together.

Summer Brain Games offers eight weeks of free and fun at-home science experiments designed to combat the "summer brain drain." The free online activity guide features weekly experiments. This year, the focus is having fun with science-themed carnival games and activities, all easily done at home with kids of all ages (and a little adult supervision).

The Summer Brain Games online kit has other engaging tidbits about the science to be found around you all summer—and year—long. Learn about pressure as you launch stomp rocket daredevils, become an engineer and design a boat!

Families who register with us at www.msichicago.org/summerbrain will receive a voucher good for a FREE Museum Entry ticket, along with weekly emails with tips and ideas on ways to play with science all summer long. Register!

Check out the full list of activities on the MSI website. 

 

 

Summer Brain Games offers eight weeks of free and fun at-home science experiments using items found around the home or inexpensively purchased. This year’s backyard science carnival is already a big hit! Launch a daredevil rocketeer while learning about compression, make your own skeeball game to test variables, become an engineer as you design and race boats and more.
