MSI’s free Summer Brain Games quell vacation brain drain
School's out for summer…yay?
Homework stress may have waned, but the new challenge is keeping kids busy and mentally engaged for the next three months. The Museum of Science and Industry is helping out with Summer Brain Games, a free new program that keeps kids sharp with at-home science projects and experiments. Kids can expect to work with a parent or caregiver on anything from making a water balloon catapult to building a solar oven or mini-submarine. Families can register now at msichicago.org/summerbrain and every week, beginning June 18, they’ll receive an email with additional tips and information on the experiments, which can be downloaded as a PDF. Everyone who signs up gets a free MSI general admission voucher to boot, while weekly drawings for family memberships and a contest for other prizes such as a computer, iPad and digital camera are also part of the deal. The educational—but fun and easy—content becomes available June 18, and covers eight weeks.
