It’s no secret that curiosity makes learning more enjoyable. Curiosity can also spark a student’s interest in a certain field, such as science. Destination Imagination’s Scientific Challenge blends the research and curiosity of science with the thrill and creativity of the theater arts, allowing kids to learn invaluable skills including public speaking, creative and critical thinking, and collaboration.
For this year’s Scientific Challenge, Top Secret, your team will create and present a story about one or more characters (including a disguised character) on a secret mission. Your team will research two sciences of hidden communication: cryptography and steganography. During the presentation, your team will use these types of hidden communication to reveal the contents of two secret messages. Your team will also design and create a gadget that appears to be an everyday item.
Watch the video below to get an inside look at your Top Secret mission.
