DESCRIPTION

Kids become the detectives with this hands-on crime scene investigation science kit. Students will get to use real lab experiments to solve the case and discover who stole the diamonds.

Study crime scene evidence:

  • fingerprints
  • clothing fibers
  • a note
  • blood (simulated)

With this crime scene science kit, kids will learn how science helps solve mysteries. First, meet four suspects and read their police statements. Do any of the suspects have a clear motive? What about alibi? Next, students examine the evidence found at the crime scene. They can read scientific explanations for each activity and follow the instruction manual/case file with helpful charts.

Real test results of the evidence reveal the culprit. Kids gain an understanding of CSI theory by reading the manual. Then they apply that in a practical situation as they test the evidence.

Conduct seven crime lab tests:

  • dusting & fuming for fingerprints
  • fingerprint analysis
  • chromatography & ink analysis
  • blood type analysis (using simulated blood samples)
  • fiber analysis using a flame test


Working through the manual and seven crime science projects takes 1-2 hours. There are enough materials to perform each test more than once. This crime scene kit works for 1-4 students working in a group. For larger classes, see the Crime Scene Science Classroom Kit.  

Forensics (or forensic science) refers to the scientific tests (chemistry) and procedures used by detectives and law enforcement to solve a crime.
