From the website:

Summer Brain Games provides eight weeks of free and fun at-home science experiments designed to combat the “summer brain drain,” when kids lose months of critical learning. The free online activity guide features weekly experiments with step-by-step instructions. This year, we’ll blast off and explore space with activities that are easily done at home with kids of all ages (and a little adult supervision).
