Briefing for Agents: The VIKINGS are trying to build a new secret mega lair. Discover the location to foil their plans! We don’t have enough DATA Agents to check out all the possible locations. Use information to narrow down the possibilities so that we can send out Agents to the most likely target.
Description of learners’ task: Learners plot sets of information (bunkers, wind farms and data centres) onto a map of Scotland to work out possible locations of the secret lair. Along the way they are introduced to the basics of how the internet works with data centres and undersea fibre optic cables.
Timing: Approx. 60 minutes.
