Sixties Science: Espionage Virtual Family Program
February 13, 2021 | 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
During the 1960s the United States and the Soviet Union used several innovative ways to gather information on about each other. From using spies and double agents to building electronic monitoring and recording devices to creating special message coding systems, the Cold War opponents were determined to stay ahead of one another. In this month’s Sixties Science program, learn about 1960s espionage techniques and test your spy skills with experiments and games involving coded messages, dead drops and “hidden in plain view” message deliveries.
The Sixties Science program is a monthly series connecting history and STEAM from the 1960s to today for students ages 8-13. This program will highlight new topics each month through virtual programs debuting on YouTube the second Saturday of every month at 10 a.m. Visit our Education page for resources for this program and upcoming dates and topics.
