Calling all agents! This workshop series is part forensics and part “spy science”. Step into the shoes of a detective—uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis. Students will create, collect, and analyze evidence and discover what skills are necessary as a crime scene lab technician. They examine clues and get hot on the trail of a culprit, and then connect the dots using science to help solve a crime in a hands-on investigation.
Look out 007! From edible messages and decoding clues, students will have the opportunity to check out some of the skills that spies must master in this hands-on journey into the world of espionage. Take home projects include an ultraviolet Fingerprint Finder kit, Spyglasses that let you secretly watch people who are behind you, Spy-noculars, a Secret Code Breaker, and an Inspecti-kit for evidence collection.
