Play Summer Brain Games with MSI

On average, students can lose from one to three months of learning by the time they return to school in the fall. But this "summer brain drain" doesn’t have to happen, and MSI is offering up an exciting, science-fused solution to help kids stay engaged during summer break.

Summer Brain Games offers eight weeks of free and fun at-home experimentation that will help engage your family in learning more about the world around you! Each week features a "summery" science theme and an accompanying experiment that can easily be performed at home with all ages (and with a little adult supervision). In addition to the weekly experiments, the Summer Brain Games online kit offers other engaging tidbits about the science to be found around you all summer—and year—long!
