Summer Brain Games at MSI

Summer Brain Games is Back at the Museum of Science and Industry!


We're gearing up for another fun summer of learning with Summer Brain Games! For the second year, MSI is 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 exploring summer themes like gardening, sunlight and sprinklers, 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 optics by creating a pinhole viewer, watch plants grow without soil, build a weather station and much more.


Register to Get in the Game


Registernow to be a part of MSI’s Summer Brain Games. When activities kick off in June, you’ll receive a voucher good for a FREE general admission ticket to MSI this summer. We'll send you weekly emails (starting the week of June 17) with tips on each experiment and additional ways to play with science. And, each week, one lucky winner will receive a household membership to MSI to experience a whole YEAR of science.


We’ll also invite you to share your Summer Brain Games experiences for a chance to win a family tech package including a notebook computer, iPad and digital camera!
