The Spacecraft Icarus, returning from a fact finding mission to the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, suddenly vanished from all tracking systems and remained lost in space for 8 months.
It has finally re-appeared, re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere without incident, although its Commander, Captain Morris, lies dead in his sleep pod. What caused the Icarus to stray from its course? Was this a computer malfunction, a collision in space, or did someone have good reason to want to redirect the ship elsewhere? Do you have what it takes to solve the case?
Join the staff of the Universal Earth Space Agency as they try and piece together the Icarus’s last journey, and the fate of its Captain; locate and examine evidence; search the dead man’s quarters; check the ship’s manual; visit other locations and search them for clues; evaluate the suspects and their statements; get to the bottom of inconsistencies and anomalies and work out what really happened.
A Whole Term’s Work
Each Sleuth IT game comes with a term’s worth of resource materials for the teacher and student. A Teacher’s Guide and Student Journal (together with additional project files and templates) scaffold the lessons and projects on an episode by episode basis. Sleuth IT is designed to be used in class and working from home.
In game footage and exemplar material from the student journal are shown below.
