From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, children will have the opportunity to check out spy equipment and even create their own edible messages at Spy Academy Parents Night Out with Mad Science. With the Undercover Observer, children step into the shoes of spies in action. What looks like an ordinary camera is actually a sneaky surveillance device that lets children spy on the side. Pizza is included.
Friday. February 14 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at The Lodge Des Peres. For children ages 6-11. Registration in advance is required.
