    Scientific Explorer Secret Messages Mini Lab will teach your child and a friend how to communicate to each other through secret messages and go on "missions" just like real spies. Cryptography is the procedure of making and using secret writing through codes or ciphers. Cryptography is no longer as simple as wrapping your message around a stick. Given sufficient resources, almost any code or cipher can be cracked. The Scientific Explorer Secret Messages kit explains how to create and discover cryptic messages, so you can communicate with your friends without others discovering your secrets. Through 18 different missions, your child will learn how to use invisible ink, The Caesar Cipher, Keyboard Cipher, Telephone Cipher, Cipher wheels, the Polybius Checkerboard, Braille, basic code breaking tools and more. The step-by-step instruction booklets make it easy to start and finish these activities. This Secret Messages Mini Lab is educational and will keep your child busy for hours.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    My son just turned 8 years old, and is in second grade. We gave him this kit for Christmas. It kept him busy for hours. The booklet has lots of exciting history behind the codes/methods and it was also fun for him. The only downside (which really isn't) is that he wanted someone to play with him. It is most fun for 2 kids to do it together. So, I was his code buddy for the day.

    My husband bought this for our daughter for Christmas mainly gor the disappearing ink pens. Well they did not work at all. She is too young to really understand the other parts of the kit.
