What kind of science does it take to solve a crime?

Forensics for Kids provides the complete history of forensic science, giving readers a comprehensive understanding of the crime-solving advancements that led to modern forensics.

Twenty-one engaging activities offer readers hands-on experiences with modern forensic methods.
Kids will:
  • Collect and compare fingerprints
  • Use chromatography to investigate a writing sample
  • Match hair samples with volunteer “suspects”
  • Recreate a face with clay on a small plastic skull
