This blog is brought to you in partnership with Discovery Place Science.

Calling all secret agents – the exciting world of espionage awaits at Discovery Place Science’s newest interactive exhibit. “Top Secret: License to Spy” allows you to channel your inner James Bond and put your observation and problem-solving skills to the test. A mysterious crime has been committed and it’s up to you to go undercover and solve it.

Create disguises and decode covert messages as you navigate your way through the life-like sets to solve the crime. As the newest spy recruit, you’ll need to use high-tech equipment to tap into satellite surveillance, break codes and more to determine a suspect in the crime.

Agents of all ages will learn about the science and technology behind espionage, as well as how these cutting-edge technologies are used in the wider world.

To complete the mission, spies-in-training will:

  • Uncover a radio bug with an oscilloscope.
  • Use lasers to listen in on top-secret conversations.
  • Position a satellite correctly to intercept an important message.

Top Secret: License to Spy will run through April 16 and is free with general admission tickets to Discovery Place Science.
