How do secret agents discover the skills of disguise, decoy, and shadowing? They detect them by observing how animals and plants spy right in our own backyard! If you want to learn some of the skills of these natural secret agents, this is the class for you! Explore with us how nature has equipped creatures with the tools of spy craft that we humans have copied and used. We will use creative games, experiments, and demonstrations to examine the ways that scientists and engineers unlock this classified information! We will use this intelligence to create our own spy science. Join us on our top secret mission! ($10 course fee)
