Students will be introduced to the world of forensic science and will take a behind-the-scenes look at crime investigations and uncover a series of "who dunnits" using current forensic techniques. They will use molecular biology to examine DNA left behind at the crime scene and ID the culprit. Participants will have the chance to interact with scientists and investigators as they learn and perform experiments to help solve crimes.
