Summer Brain Games are Back at MSI!

Join us for another fun summer of learning with Summer Brain Games! MSI is once again offering up an exciting, science-fused solution to help kids stay engaged during summer vacation.

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, we're 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 and engineer and design the fastest boat you can race, construct a carnival tent from newspapers and more.

Register and Get a Free Ticket to MSI!

Register now to be a part of Summer Brain Games and you’ll receive a voucher good for a FREE Museum Entry ticket to MSI this summer. We'll send you a weekly email with tips on each experiment and additional ways to play with science.
