SciLab@NYPL: Spy Academy

February 2, 2012

Program Locations:

New Dorp Library
For ages 5 to 12 years
Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs for children at The New York Public Library are made possible through the generous support of Con Edison.

Look out 007 - the Mad Science spy academy is in session! From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, children will have the opportunity to check out spy equipment and even create their own edible messages! They will use the Secret Code Breaker to communicate in code, like real spies. With the Undercover Observer, children step into the shoes of spies in action. What looks like an ordinary camera is actually a sneaky surveillance device that lets children spy on the side. Presented by Mad Science of Staten Island. For ages 6 and older. Limited to 20 participants.
