MSI's Summer Brain Games
June 14, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Just because children are on summer vacation doesn't mean that their brains have to be.
To stop the "brain drain," the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago is kicking off its second year of Summer Brain Games. The program is 8 weeks of free and fun at-home experiments of summery science themes that can easily be done by kids of all ages.
This year, the Museum is teaming up with the Chicago Public Library to bring Summer Brain Games to more than 60,000 Chicago kids through the Rahm's Readers summer learning program. The program is available online, so kids across the country can participate, and is in English and Spanish.
