Summer Brain Games: Explore STEM in the City!
Chicago’s Museum of Science+Industry presents hands-on science activities designed to keep young brains engaged over the summer. The projects, which use readily available items, include engineering a skyscraper, a gravity sewer, and balloon racers. Children make maps to explore proportions and scale, create an ecosystem in a jar, experiment with substances to get gum off a shoe, construct a device to soundproof a phone, and build a simple circuit to learn about what conducts electricity. Weeks and weeks of fun!
