Who Dunnit?
10:00 a.m. noon | Ages 1013, chaperone required

Forensic scientists can use DNA evidence to identify people who were present at a crime scene. DNA Fingerprinting is one of the most powerful tools in the forensic toolbox, and has even been used to exonerate people who were wrongly imprisoned years ago! Come join us to produce a DNA Fingerprint that will be used to compare suspects to evidence, and learn more about how and why DNA can be so useful in crime scene investigation.

In this session, participants will:

  • compare different types of evidence that can be found at crime scenes;
  • use gel electrophoresis to analyze DNA samples;
  • determine which suspect matches the DNA evidence.
