Summer Brain Games

Keep sharp with science challenges from MSI!

Discover Science at Home with MSI

Blast off and explore space with activities that are easily done at home with kids of all ages (and a little adult supervision), using items found around the house. Launch a rocket, land your payload safely on the surface, experiment with ways to grow food and more.

Find step-by-step instructions for eight space science activities from MSI's Summer Brain Games program. There's also experiments with a science carnival theme and others that explore summer science.

Then join us next summer, because Summer Brain Games will be back in 2016! You'll be able to register and get a FREE Museum Entry ticket to visit MSI next summer.
