Spy Academy Camp Description


Day 1: Spy Academy 

Look out 007—Mad Science Spy Academy is in session! From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, you will have the opportunity to check out spy equipment and even create secret messages that you can destroy, hide, and even eat! With your Secret Code Breaker, you will be able to communicate in code, like real spies. With the Undercover Observer, you will step into the shoes of spies in action. What looks like an ordinary camera is actually a sneaky surveillance device that lets you spy on the side.

Day 2: Discover Detection 

Step into the shoes of a detective and uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis. Using the power of observation and the Inspecti-Kit, you will have all you need to get started with your investigations. You will use your gear in your new kit to find, collect, and analyze evidence. You will even have a chance to further analyze your evidence under a digital microscope. Then, explore and conduct fingerprint analysis and use the Fingerprint Finder to place and identify UV prints. 



Day 3: Sleuths On The Scence

Suspects, schematics, and sleuths…oh my!  Connect the dots using science to help solve a crime in this hands-on investigation of the science of sleuthing.  Use the Scene Solver to reconstruct the scene of a crime.  Using the Whodunit-Kit, you will practice your skills of recall and observation—matching character descriptions to reconstruct the face of the culprit!


Day 4: Funky Forensics

Explore forensic science in this hands-on look at crime scene investigation. Use your Case Stamper to stamp out a mystery on a case card, and discover the science of tracking. Got clues?  With the Spynoculars, you can stealthily observe clues from afar. These build-your-own binoculars are used to test the limits of magnified observation and are a sneaky way to refine your observational skills.



Day 5: Science of Security

Sharpen your surveillance skills with the science of security! Discover the science and technology behind locks, surveillance systems, laser technology, and burglar alarms! Use your Spyglasses on short surveillance shifts to test your observational abilities. Then, put your security skills to the test by building your very own Secret Safe and challenge your fellow campers to crack the code!
