Rumor has it that there has been some foul play on the planet Mars! After a secret mission went awry, an astronaut has gone missing. The final transmission was concerning and we were hired to investigate. Can we solve the mystery and find a way home?

If you love mystery themed novels and detective shows, then you will love this program! This program will give you the chance to test your critical thinking skills in hypothetical situations both based in fantasy and reality. You will learn how to excel in puzzles and riddles and find yourself using lateral thinking to be more creative in your guesses. The puzzles and riddles will involve colors, wordplay, shapes, and elementary math. You will look for misdirections, and break down the steps necessary to solve the puzzles. Then, you will share and debate hypotheses with your fellow Girl Scouts, ultimately working together to solve the mystery before the program ends.

At the end of the program, the facilitator will give participants a "behind the scenes" look as to how the animations and special effects in the program are being done. The facilitator will also explain the creative process behind developing an immersive mystery experience, and how Girl Scouts can create their own!
