What's covered?

There's trouble in the science lab! Campus police have reported strange lights coming from the lab at odd hours of the night. Lab workers have claimed they've even seen a ghost! Campus video cameras set up captured what appears to be an apparition stealing from the lab. Who...or what...is behind the trouble? We need your junior crime scene investigator to help unravel this tangled mystery! Your child will become a member of an investigative team that will discover and develop the vital evidence by studying it in the laboratory. The team will conduct a number of experiments on the evidence they find at the crime scene. They will relentlessly pursue any criminal activity they uncover during their investigation and bring the guilty parties to justice. As a forensic scientist in training. your child will conduct hands-on experiments and meet with Penn State experts. S/he will gain new skills and knowledge and make new friends!
