A Trip to Mars
Rumor has it that there has been some foul play on the planet Mars! After a secret mission went awry, an astronaut has gone missing. The final transmission was concerning and we were hired to investigate. Can you help solve the mystery and find a way home?
If your girl loves mystery themed novels and detective shows, then she will love this program! This experience will give your girl the chance to test her critical thinking skills in hypothetical situations based in fantasy and reality. Girls will learn how to excel in puzzles and riddles that involve colors, wordplay, shapes, and math. Girls will look for misdirections, and break down the steps necessary to solve the puzzles. Throughout the activity, they will be encouraged to share and debate hypotheses with their peers to work together to solve the mystery before the program ends.
