Is humanity’s hunger for information new? Is this something that’s happened with the birth of the personal computer, or is it something that’s been around much longer?
As it turns out, humans have desired information for a long time. Often, it was because groups of people didn’t get along. They wanted to know what the “bad guys” were up to, so they would send one of their own to spy on the other group. Since early history, spying has been the subject of many stories. With this program students will learn about the history of spying and the Cold War, learn spying techniques and decode encrypted messages. Includes teacher training as requested, standards-aligned curriculum and one copy of the book The Spycatchers of Maple Hill by Megan Frazer.
Duration: 3-5 hours (add extra time for lunch and/or gift store)
