CSI — Chicago

Scientific Disciplines — Chemistry and Biology

In this program, we’ll investigate the field of forensic science. Learn how scientists chemically reveal latent (hidden) fingerprints. Discover how microscopy is used to provide evidence in a criminal investigation. See how drug testing is performed. Find out how blood types and DNA evidence are used to convict or exonerate a suspect. Understand how forgeries are committed and detected in the art world and learn how our government utilizes special measures to prevent counterfeiting of paper money and coinage.

We’ll set up a crime scenario complete with clues and potential suspects and you’ll use your skills to nail the actual perpetrator.
