Tuesday we investigated physical evidence! We learned about forensic testing through our mystery powders experiment. We investigated trace evidence as well by examining several soil samples closely and trying to match them with evidence found at the crime scene. We learned about the importance of small clues with our heat loss experiment. Campers left their own impressions with our tennis shoe detective experiment. We got to dust for our own footprints and match up any patterns we saw.

Thursday, our theme was forensic anthropology! We spent most of our morning learning about fingerprints and ridgeology. We dusted for latent prints and took our own! We also got to try our forensic anthropology challenge. We built skeletons blindfolded, guided by a partner of course!
