Day 1: Spy Academy

Children discover cryptology—how to decipher numbers to send secret messages to their friends! They learn code language just like computers do and discover and explore many different spy tools that our used in the field. They will receive their very own spy tool to take home.

Day 3: Discover Detection

Children join the Mad Science Bureau of Investigations to sniff out forgeries and counterfeits! They will take a close look at handwriting analysis and how UV light can discover things not seen with the naked eye. They will look at crime scenes and how the evidence can help us to solve crimes. They can practice theses skills at home with their very own Scene Solver.

Day 4: Funky Forensics

Children follow Sherlock’s footsteps to learn what tracks n’ trails can teach us! They find out how bugs, foot prints and Ink from a pen can make a big break in a case. They can create their own crime scene with their take-home case stamper.
