Our Mad Scientist Super Sleuths are on the case! From decoding cryptic messages to metal detectors and night vision, students learn all about how Forensic Scientists catch the bad guys.
DISCOVER DETECTION: 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. Whodunit? Students will find out by using their Fingerprint Finder to place and identify UV prints.
SPY ACADEMY: Look out 007—the Mad Science spy academy is in session! From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, children will have the opportunity to check out spy equipment and even create their own edible messages! They will use the Secret Code Breaker to communicate in code, like real spies. With the Undercover Observer, children step into the shoes of spies in action. What looks like an ordinary camera is actually a sneaky surveillance device that lets children spy on the side.
SLEUTHS ON THE SCENE: Suspects, schematics, and sleuths… oh my! Connect the dots using science to help solve a crime in this hands-on investigation of the science of sleuthing. Children will use the Scene Solver to reconstruct the scene of a crime. Using the Whodunit-Kit, they can practice their skills of recall and observation—matching character descriptions to reconstruct the face of the culprit!
FUNKY FORENSICS: Explore forensic science in this hands-on look at crime scene investigation. Children use the Case Stamper to stamp out a mystery on a case card and discover the science of tracking. Got clues? With the Spynoculars, children stealthily observe clues from afar. These build-your-own binoculars are used to test the limits of magnified observation and are a sneaky way to refine observational skills.
SCIENCE OF SECURITY: Unlock your spy skill as we tackle the toughest security breaches. We will “pick open” locks, sneak past a whispermeter, and create our own security system. Teams will attempt to crack through each other’s security systems and track a treasure.
JUNIOR DETECTIVES: Are detectives really scientists in disguise? Discover what it takes to be a detective in this hands-on look at detective science. Using powers of observations and the Inspecti-kit, our young scientists will have all they need to get started on their detective adventure.
WHODUNIT?: Want to know who did it? Test your skills and learn how the pros do it through careful observation and techniques to handle evidence properly. Using their Whodunit Kit take home, students 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.
