Create Mystery @ your library!

Mr. Ohrt's prized possession, Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, is missing. The person responsible for its disappearance is among us. Track down the culprit by collecting clues.



  1. Decide if you will be working on this alone or as part of a team (no more than 4 per team).
  2. Stop by Mr. Ohrt's office to offer your sympathy (and pick up your answer sheet).
  3. The first QR code can be found in the library.
  4. Scan the other QR codes found on Main Street.
  5. Answer the questions using the Iowa AEA Online resources.
  6. Bring your answers back to the library by Friday, March 11th.


Prizes, not to mention Mr. Ohrt's gratitude, will be given to the team or individual who can solve the mystery.
