Solve a Crime

As part of the on-site crime investigation team, you'll collect evidence, interrogate witnesses, and process materials found at the crime scene in our biology and chemistry labs. Through hands-on laboratory analysis, you'll begin to amass evidence.  You'll need to be on your toes when you conduct your first interview with the witnesses and/or suspects. The pressure is on as you spend the week exploring this crime.   Are the witnesses being truthful?   Are their observations accurate?  On the final day, you'll meet with a  legal expert who will brief you on your options.  Can you figure out whodunit—and can you prove it?
