Brad knows he could help make their castle amazing, if only they'd listen. To the Secret Museum! Our heroes go back in time to meet someone who knew exactly how to command attention: Winston Churchill. They meet Winston just as he's about to play a game of capture the flag with his new schoolmates, but none of them want to listen to his ideas on how to play the game! Knowing he could lead his team to victory, Winston keeps on sharing his ideas, confidently and politely, until the boys finally listen. Their big win shows Brad how important it is to speak up for yourself. I am Cleopatra Xavier is stoked to see a super awesome super moon in real life! There's just one problem: he'd have to stay up past bedtime. How can he ask his parents? What if they say no? To the Secret Museum! Our heroes go back in time to meet someone who was skilled at the art of negotiation: Cleopatra. They arrive in Ancient Egypt and find Cleopatra just as she's preparing to ask her father a big question of her own: she wants to end her daily lessons a full hour early so she can attend a festival in town. Luckily, Cleopatra knows exactly how to ask! You have to be prepared, confident, and polite. Seeing how well Cleopatra's strategy works shows Xavier how important it is to ask for things the right way.
