Summary
Crime Scene Science puts you inside the head, and the toolbox, of modern-day experts in crime solving. Slip under the yellow crime-scene tape to conduct your own experiments. You'll soon be detecting, inspecting, and connecting the dots of forensic science. Investigate rates of human decomposition; find out what makes fingerprints unique; identify handwriting traits; and discover the secrets of paper fiber analysis. Each workshop includes suggestions on effective presentation at science fairs, taking experiments one step further, and using science vocabulary correctly
