Summer Brain Games is Back at MSI!

We're gearing up 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," when kids lose months of critical learning. The free online activity guide features weekly experiments. This year, we'll have 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 will offer other engaging tidbits about the science to be found around you all summer—and year—long. Learn about physics as you play ring toss, become an engineer and design the fastest boat you can race, and much more.

Register to Get in the Game
