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

About this event:

A well-loved castle owner has mysteriously disappeared. You have been tasked with exploring her castle and finding out who took her. The castle is full of mysteries. Only if you can solve all of the puzzles together in time will you discover the culprit and escape. If not, you may just end up as their next victim.

If your child already loves mystery-themed novels and detective shows, then this class will give them the chance to test their critical thinking skills in hypothetical situations, both based in fantasy and reality. Your child will learn how to excel in puzzles and riddles and find themselves using lateral thinking to be more creative in their 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
