Help us solve the Mystery of the Missing Library Elephant! The beloved library elephant is missing. Use basic forensic techniques to help solve the mystery of who took it. In this three-part series, students will learn how to conduct basic forensic skills to solve a simple crime. Part one will explore shoe prints, specifically sizing, treads, and castings, as well as a look at handwriting analysis. In part two, students will learn how to lift fingerprints, the different types and uniqueness of fingerprints as well as observe a simple fabric burn test. Finally, in part 3 students will work together in teams to see which team will be the first to solve the mystery of the missing elephant. It is suggested that you sign your child up for all three sessions but not mandatory. You must sign up each week. Signing up on the first week does not automatically sign you up for all 3 sessions.
