Funky Forensics - Day 1
Crime Lab - Day 2
|Sleuths on the Scene - Day 3|
Suspects, schematics, and sleuths… oh my! Connect the dots using science to help solve a crime in this hands-on investigation at the science of sleuthing. Campers will use the “Mad Science Scene Solver” to reconstruct the scene of a crime. Scientists test blood and fingerprints at crime scenes to be matched with suspects.
|Whodunit - Day 4|
Everything at a crime scene can be evidence - even trash! Forensic scientists must sort through all the evidence to find the important clues to solve a case! Campers will use each and mixtures to repair damaged paper evidence. Using their “Mad Science Whodunit Kit”, they can practice the skills of recall and observation—they are provided with character descriptions to reconstruct the face of the suspect! Provided answer keys give them feedback on their skills.
