Summer of Epic Adventure—The Sequel—Episode 10: Brain Games

Unite, Bayou City do-gooder kids! The pint-size villain Malicious has been attacking the city all summer and he isn’t done yet, the Children’s Museum of Houston website warns. Kids are being asked to join The Brain and Whiz Kid to find a way to stop him. You’ll have to use all your super smarts to solve Malicious’s perplexing puzzles, but if you can figure out what he’s up to, you might be able to save the city. Holy cranium, Batman, this is serious! Okay, maybe it’s really just serious fun, but Episode 10: Brain Games, the latest installment of the Summer of Epic Adventure — The Sequel, is pretty challenging. In Brain Games, brains beat brawn every time. Interactive events include Get Your Gear On (designing caps and masks), Build and Smash (a challenge of mental abilities), and Epic Experience — Zap! LED Circuitry (where budding heroes “power” their own arc reactor).

There’s a full slate of other ongoing activities for pre-teen Titans. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. Through August 25. 1500 Binz. For information, call 713-522-1138 or visit cmhouston.org. $9.
