I started the day out with a code to break. At breakfast I gave Meg and Clare this puzzle and they used the cipher Meg and I made at the Smithsonian Sleepover to solve it.
The museum definitely offers hands-on activities that kids and adults can enjoy. There is a duct tunnel that kids can crawl through and attempt to listen in on conversations. The sound made in the duct tunnel is measured so kids know if they are quiet enough to be a spy. There are touchscreens with video footage of crowds and the user attempts to locate the disguised spy. The James Bond exhibit includes a hang time test, which Meg is using below.
I'm glad to say that even grumpy Clare found some ways to amuse herself. Here, she and Anne are being Bletchley girls--intercepting German intelligence in World War II.
