Operation Code Cracker
Presented by: The International Spy Museum

Sure your students are crafty, but can they become a code cracker on a top-secret mission? There's a mole in the operation. Black Ops has collected evidence from a suspect's apartment. Can your students decipher secret messages to reveal important intel? Supporting critical thinking, analysis, and problem solving skills, this workshop demonstrates how codes and ciphers function in the shadow-world of espionage.

Spy Science: Operation STEM
Presented by: The International Spy Museum

"Tech Ops...come in Tech Ops." A field agent is in trouble and needs help. Students play the role of Technical Operations Officers (Tech Ops) supporting an agent in her secret mission. First, with basic electronics, everyday objects, and some creativity, students are challenged to create a signaling device. Then, they must decrypt a secret message and finally devise an exfiltration plan using geospatial analysis.
Dates: 10/29/2019

Length of Event: 3 hours
Grades: 4th-6th
Content Area: Science
Learning Standards: NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS: 4th grade: 4. Energy: 4-PS3-2. Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. 5th grade: 5-PS1 Matter and Its Interactions: 5-PS1-3 Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties
