The project included several teachers lesson plans allowing students from around the world to participate.
We really tried to keep things as authentic as possible when creating this project. We wanted all the elements to reinforce the project’s theme.

One of the biggest tasks in this project was to create engaging content that would capture students imaginations. Using the Flash programming environment offered us almost unlimited possibilities to create multiple activities that give an almost hands on ability to learn. From decoding hidden messages with colored lenses to reviewing hidden messages though virtually heating the page to allow the message to become visible. We also created an activity that mimics a morse code tapper where students could listen to message and write them down.
We love coming up with new and interesting ways to display information. This project offered some very creative environments for us to explore while developing the project. Check out the interactive applets within the teachers lounge and explore some of our more engaging applets! These applets are a mixture of Photoshop,
3D Studio Max, and Flash animation.
