Detective or CSI (Gr. 4-6)

Bishop Diego School • 4000 La Colina Rd Santa BarbaraCA  93105 Organized by Art Explorers & Terrific Scientific

About this event

What is the difference between a detective and a crime scene investigator? What does a stolen bunny, a broken cookie jar, a dollhouse, and a footprint all have in common? Find out as you put your deductive reasoning skills to work solving crimes and mysteries that would unravel any student and you have only 5 days to do it! Process mock crime scenes using “real world” techniques and equipment and analyze evidence used in the forensic laboratory. Discover Frances Glessner Lee, known as “mother of forensic science”, who created crime scene models or dollhouses to train law enforcement officials in forensic science. To add to the intrigue, play out the role of investigators, witnesses, and suspects as you work together to solve these crimes. Will you be able to discover who broke the cookie jar, figure out whose footprint was left at the crime scene, find the real bunny thief, and save Honey the Bunny before it’s too late? Campers' projects include: DNA tests, fingerprints and lip prints, bite impression, blood typing, toxicology, microscopy, hair and fiber analysis, chromatography and DNA.
