April Break: ESQ Spy Circuit

1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Event Details

Engineering Science Quest from the University of Waterloo empowers youth to be the change our world will need in the future by creating opportunities for them to increase confidence in their science, engineering and technology abilities. Secret agents need to hide their files from enemy eyes. They need to make it so they can access their own files but that espionage agents will not be able to get a hold of them. How can you do this? In Spy Circuits, you will use what you know about circuits to make a system for keeping your secret files safe from enemy hands. You will put your secret files in holes that have tinfoil in them, and use a metal tool to take the files out - but if the tool touches the tinfoil, an alarm will go off!

This program includes a FREE supply kit (AA batteries not included), instruction booklet and ESQ video so that you can complete this activity at home during April Break. Kits can be picked up at Central Library starting on Tuesday, April 6. The link to the video will be shared by email on Monday, April 12 by 1:00 pm. You can complete the project any time you want.
