Can your students use their observation skills to spot threats and opportunities, work as a team to reveal secrets and think like a gadget-maker to solve problems? In this skill-based program, interactive challenges with real-world stories will be woven together as students explore the shadow-world of espionage and answer the age-old question…Do you have what it takes to be a spy?
