Description


Crime Scene Science that 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. Talk the talk, and walk the walk, your crime scene is this way, Detective.

About the Author


Karen Romano Young is very much a renaissance woman with interests as broad as the seven seas and as deep as the deepest trench in the deepest ocean, with a particular interest in anything oceanic. She is an author of many celebrated books for young readers, both fiction and nonfiction, some of which she also illustrated. Her interest in science experiments are an outgrowth of many successive years of science fair projects with her children. Karen and her family live in Connecticut.
