Discover Science
at Home with MSI

Encourage learning all year with our science-fused solution! Be a science superhero and defeat the evil Dr. Brain Drain by unleashing your powers of engineering and creativity. These activities are easily done at home with kids of all ages (and a little adult supervision), using items found around the house. Build your own fortress, control the weather, make a custom vehicle and even learn a few science tricks that will convince your friends you are telepathic and telekinetic. 

Find step-by-step instructions for eight superhero science activities and check out our library of other experiments, like space science, a science carnival theme and others that explore summer science.

Then join us next summer, because Summer Brain Games will be back in 2018! You'll be able to register and get a FREE Museum Entry ticket to visit MSI next summer.
