Forensic Science at YCES!

A crime has been committed in the library …
do you know who did it???


This week in place of library time, students get to experience the exciting world of Forensic Science!  Students have been given the opportunity to collect evidence and try to determine the culprit.  Someone destroyed library books … and left a mess - not to mention a lot of damage!


We are experimenting with finger print collection, footprint collection, chromatography, interrogation and fiber analysis.

Ask your children if they can tell you how they figured out who committed this horrible crime!  They have been asking some terrific questions!!!

This is all part of science month at YCES in preparation for the:
2015 Mad Science Fair

Check out the YCES Science Blog for more information!
