Forensic Science

June 17-21, 2019 | 9 am to 3 pm

Mystery solved! Join us to find out how science is used in crime investigations. Do you know which pen wrote the ransom note? Can you collect and analyze a fingerprint? Were there fibers at the crime scene? What is blood typing? How do investigators study ballistics? 

Through hands-on activities, participants will answer these questions and more to solve mysteries. Related topics in physics and chemistry will be explored as well. Students will come away with an understanding of basic crime scene analysis.
