In this one time event, girl scouts will use logic and deductive reasoning to solve a perplexing mystery in space!

About this event:

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 we solve the mystery and find a way home?

If your girl already loves mystery-themed novels and detective shows, then this class will give her the chance to test her critical thinking skills in hypothetical situations, both based in fantasy and reality. Your girl will learn how to excel in puzzles and riddles and find herself using lateral thinking to be more creative in her guesses. The puzzles and riddles will involve colors, wordplay, shapes, and elementary math. Participants will look for misdirections, and break down the steps necessary to solve the puzzles. They will share and debate hypotheses with their fellow girl scouts, ultimately working together to solve the mystery before class ends.

Learning Goals:

- Improve pattern recognition ability and reasoning ability through various puzzles

- Distinguish between linear vs. non linear puzzles

- Develop strategies to maximize time

- Learn to think like a puzzle writer

- Learn to make the seemingly "invisible" answer, visible
