Fall Exhibition: Crime Lab Detective
This just in: A new suspect is at large! Calling all detectives: even if you completed the first mystery, new clues have been discovered that lead to a new suspect.Can you solve the mystery? At the Sciencenter's fall exhibition, Crime Lab Detective, you'll become an investigator as you scrutinize evidence like fingerprints and DNA, and record your findings in a Detective Notebook. After examining the crime scene, you'll conduct lab activities to determine which of the five suspects committed the crime. Throughout the course of the exhibition, you can also join us for hands-on activities like:
- Fingerprinting: Look closely at your own fingerprints
- Ink Detective: Use paper chromatography to identify mystery ink
- Mystery Liquid: Identify an unknown liquid
- Mystery Powder: Test chemical reactions to determine the powder
- Secret Message: Write a hidden message using invisible ink
Crime Lab Detective has been developed by the Museum of Discovery, Little Rock, Arkansas.
