Week Three… NAILED!

There was a flurry of activity in the Explorations Academy office this morning, as rightfully proud teams came in with correct weekly answers to the Week Three puzzles of the Great Mystery!

At 7:44 am, Team Sasquatch came in with the Essential Edition weekly answer.  Team member Tamary Baz of Team Sasquatch (named after their dog) commented “We’re having a lot of fun.  It gives us something awesome to do each weekend.  It’s also helpful getting to know Bellingham, since I’m pretty new here.”  Team Sasquatch claimed a gift certificate from Mi Casa, a fine Mexican restaurant near REI.

Wasting no time, Emily Kubiak of the Bee Local Bees buzzed into our office with the Super Sleuth answer at 7:56 am.  Emily said that “the best part of the Great Mystery is getting to know my co-workers better, having a chance to work together on a project outside the office.”  Staying with the post-Cinco de Mayo theme, the Bee Local Bees ( which happens to be the Sustainable Connections team) claimed a gift certificate for a meal at Dos Padres.

We congratulate and celebrate ALL our Great Mystery teams, including those for whom the puzzles (or, in some cases, the actual finding of the clues after solving the puzzles) are challenging.  Thank you for supporting our school through your involvement in this adventurous group problem solving event.  Finally, we hope to see all Great Mystery teams next Tuesday the 15th for our closing reception and the awarding of the prize for the Culminating Mystery!
