Summer is here and we don’t want our kiddos brain’s getting lazy do we? The Museum of Science Industry, Chicago has a way to help. They are offering 8 weeks of fun and interactive classes to keep the kids interested in science throughout the summer and these classes are packed with learning. But the kids will never suspect that is what they are doing.
Summer Brain Games, perfect for families with kids of various ages, fights the “summer brain drain” with a FREE online activity kit featuring weekly, at-home experiments on summery science themes. The experiments can be done with some adult supervision and items that are easily and inexpensively purchased—or found around the house. The kit is available in both English and Spanish.
Families who register to be “Summer Brainiacs” at msichicago.org/summerbrain will receive a voucher good for a FREE general admission ticket to MSI. (One per household.) Participants will get weekly emails with tips on each experiment and additional ways to play with science during the summer. And, each week, one lucky winner will receive a family membership to MSI to experience a whole YEAR of science. Participants will also be invited to share their Summer Brain Games experiences with at least one photo and a brief essay about what they learned for a chance to win a tech package—a notebook computer, iPad and digital camera!
Visit msichicago.org/summerbrain now to register and learn more. The eight weeks of activities will be available online by June 18 and run through August 12, 2012.
