Solve a mystery using science and critical thinking!
Mobile Ed Productions is proud to present Crime Scene Science, a brand-new 45-minute program devoted to introducing students to the exciting field of the science behind solving crimes. In the process, your students will be exposed to important aspects of critical thinking, essential not only in the Scientific Method but in all forms of problem solving.
We show the students that this field actually draws from all forms of science. Chemistry, physics, and biology are all discussed through a variety of demonstrations involving lots of audience participation. Also introduced are basic rules of observation and creative thinking, as laid out by the famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes.
The audience is informed of a great mystery, "The Great Cat Caper." Your students are asked to put on their thinking caps and become forensic technicians to help solve this dastardly crime. Using different tools - including fingerprinting, DNA analysis, restoration of a broken window, and making a casting of a footprint - the performer will lead your students through a fun and illuminating journey with plenty of twists and turns - with an ending which may surprise even you!
Just added to Crime Scene Science is an additional workshop! This amendment to the 45-minute program allows students to see firsthand fingerprinting, plaster casting, and other modern methods of preventing and solving crime in small groups of 20-30 kids.
With references to most scientific fields, along with humor, a touch or two of magic and plenty of fun, we think your school will find Crime Scene Science to be one mystery you will be happy to solve!
