Week 5: Young Detectives

Paul Romani

These young detectives had a fantastic week learning about fingerprints, footprints, working with Facial Composite Software, solving mystery powder challenges by using acid/base indicators, and even extracting DNA from a banana!
Each day, Detective Simran introduced her students to a different concept used by real forensic scientists, and students applied a variety of skills and subject areas to problems, including math, logical reasoning, physics, fine art and chemistry. They even detected Paul’s fingerprints around Pear Tree!
