MSI Summer Brain Games

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry.

School’s finally out for the summer and, if you’re anything like me, you like to keep your kids busy during the summer months.  I can remember as far back as when my daughter was in preschool and I purchased those huge activity books for her to complete when she wasn’t in school.  To me, there was nothing worse than falling behind in school because you had “summer brain” once school started back up.

I was so happy to hear about the Chicago Museum of Science & Industry’s (MSI)Summer Brain Games program.  The program is offering up a fun and free online science program called Summer Brain Games that will keep kids learning this summer and prevent the “summer brain drain.”  Each week you’ll get an online kit that features an experiment or science challenge that can easily be performed at home with kids of all ages (and with a little adult supervision). It’s offered in both English and Spanish.  I have such a curious toddler, that I know he’ll be interested in seeing what will happen.  The museum is located in Chicago, but anyone can participate in the weekly science experiments, but if you register for this fun and free program you’ll get a pass to come to the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry for free this summer.  That’s awesome for anyone who lives in the Chicago area, or will be planning a visit this summer!

Week 1’s experiment was Balloon Racers.  The idea of the experiment is to show Newton’s third law of motion in action (the law states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction).  My toddler couldn’t complete the entire experiment by himself, but he did help me color the “El” Train and he loved watching the balloons race!

He’s a bit young to really grasp the “science” behind it all, but he still loved seeing which color balloon would win the race (the red balloon without the train weighing it down won every time!).  It’s never too early to help develop your child’s love for learning and the MSI Summer Brain Games is a great way to kick-start a love for science.  My husband loves this as he is the true “Science Geek” in my household!
